Hello,

Im on lookout for a perl script to convert html table data into a csv file.

Even a php script would do.

Thx in advance.

Not sure why you'd want something like that, but do you mean to take each tagged piece, remove the HTML tag, and then place a comma where the end tag was?

What about improper HTML?
No end tag?
What about commas that are already in the file?

Just google "html table parser" and take your pick of languages.

Didn't see one in Fortran but I only had a quick glance
