Html tag removing but keeping <a href tag

By using Formatter.pm in perl we can remove all html tags. But I want to keep tag <a href and remove all other tags. Can any body help me to change Formatter.pm file to do this task.

Just out of curiosity, is this a module that you or someone else you know, wrote? The only "Formatter" module I see is for report generation via a DBI query. There is nothing about HTML in it. If it is a specific module from CPAN, which one is it?

If it is your own, home grown module, then we don't have any clue what the code looks like or does.

Regards,

Jeff

Title : yes it is CPAN Module Version: 2.04
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://search.cpan.org/~sburke/HTML-...L/Formatter.pm

Aforementioned is the link of the CPAN formatter.pm file. When we use Formatter.pm and FormatText.pm files it removes all the Html tags present in Html file. What I want is to remove all the tags but keeping the tags which starts with <a href .

So following is a part of that formatter.pm file code we have to change to keep <a href tags by leaving all the code in Formatter.pm file as it is.

I have tried to change it but I am not good in writing code in perl so I cant do so.

Because you are expert and I am sure you can do it in very short time. This is why I need your help.

If you still have any question related to it please email me XXXXXXXXXX
I am waiting for you warm response.
