A Search for Documentation on HTML::Parser

Dave Aiello wrote, "For the last three days, I have been searching for usable documentation and examples for the HTML::Parser module for Perl. Everything I read on-line says that this is the way to implement an HTML parser in Perl, but you'd never know it from the information that people have posted about how to actually use it."

Dave Aiello continues, "I will continue to search for useful information about the module and report anything that actually helps me solve my problem."

"FWIW, I am trying to write a simple parser that strips HTML from a block of text, and leaves the plain text. For instance, I want all of the text in a paragraph including the text inside tags like '<a href...>', '<b>', '<i>', etc."
