htmldata 1.0.4 - Manipulate HTML documents via data structure

htmldata 1.0.4 is available.


The htmldata module allows one to translate HTML
documents back and forth to list data structures.
This allows for programmatic reading and writing
of HTML documents, with much flexibility.

Functions are also available for extracting
and/or modifying all URLs present in the HTML
or stylesheets of a document.

Version 1.0.4 is a bugfix release offering:
* Python 2.0-2.4 support (thanks to Paul Clinch
for the Python 2.2 patch)
* Properly working XHTML parsing.
* Miscellaneous other fixes (see the changelog
for details).

I have found this library useful for writing
robots, for "wrapping" all of the URLs on
websites inside my own proxy CGI script, for
filtering HTML, and for doing flexible wget-like

It keeps things as simple as possible, so it
should be easy to learn.

I'm trying to get htmldata.py (written with Python 2.3 in mind) to work with Python 2.2. Thanks much to Paul Clinch for showing me how to convert for i, text in enumerate(L) to for i, text in zip(range(len(L)),L) I have one more glitch in getting htmldata.py to work in Python2.2: Can someone show me how to recode this without the finditer?

Hi, I've read somewhere that feature-based analysis can be used to extract the semantic structure of HTML documents. By semantic structure, they mean the model of the rendered view a reader sees. Now, my question is, what should such feature-based analysis involve? What exactly is a feature-based analysis? Please help.

Hi everyone, I'm going to manipulate some XML files in my next project-- crawl through the tags, compare if file X has the same nodes as file Y, and if not, what the differences are and who's missing what. I'll also be comparing values between nodes in the two files, for when both documents do have the same named nodes. What .Net classes should I be looking at to accomplish these tasks? Thanks a bunch.

Hi, I have table pairs that I need to compare, and produce another table that shows differences. I can't just open them in separate browser and look for differences, because I have many such table pairs, and so this process has to be automated. Tables can differ in a number of ways - columns and rows can be added or missing, values of cells can change. To see an example of the differences, I'm attaching below two tables.

Hello, I am having a problem that I believe is related to the way a stream reader object looks for a text file by default. What I am doing is using a StreamReader object to read the text of a text file which includes some html code to populate html formatted content as the text of an asp:label (<asp:label>). The reading of the text file itself goes just fine ;however, this only occurs when I use an absolute file path which will not work of...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
