NAME ^

HTML::Content::Extractor - Recieving a main text of publication from HTML page and main media content that is bound to the text

SYNOPSIS ^

 my $obj = HTML::Content::Extractor->new();
 $obj->analyze($html, {class => ["comment", "tags", "blog", "theme", "footer", "head"]});
 
 my $main_text    = $obj->get_main_text();
 my $main_images  = $obj->get_main_images(1, {src => "logo", alt => ["logo", "crazy"]}, 150);
 
 my $raw_text     = $obj->get_raw_text();
 my $main_text_we = $obj->get_main_text_with_elements(1, ["a", "b", "br", "strike", ...]);
 
 print $main_text, "\n\n";
 
 print "Images:\n";
 foreach my $elem (@$main_images) {
        print $elem->{prop}->{src}, "\n";
 }
 
 # html elements
 my $obj = HTML::Content::Extractor->new();
 
 $obj->build_tree($html);
 my $tree = $obj->get_tree();
 
 my $i = -1;
 while( my $element = $obj->get_element_by_name("div", ++$i) ) {
        print "<", $element->{name};
        
        foreach my $key (keys %{$element->{prop}}) {
                print " ", $key, '="', $element->{prop}->{$key}, '"';
        }

DESCRIPTION ^

This module analyzes an HTML document and extracts the main text (for example front page article contents on the news site) and all related images.

METHODS ^

new

 my $obj = HTML::Content::Extractor->new();

Creates and prepares the structure for the subsequent analysis and parsing HTML.

analyze

 $obj->analyze($html, [hashref]);

Creates an HTML document tree and analyzes it. [hashref] - optional parameter which may (or may not) contain key-value pairs, where key is name of html tag attribute and its value is stop word, which will be ignored with all child tags. Useful for common tags for header/footer/logo etc.

get_main_text

 # UTF-8
 my $main_text = $obj->get_main_text(1);
 # or not
 my $main_text = $obj->get_main_text(0);
 # default UTF-8 is on

Return plain text.

get_raw_text

 # UTF-8
 my $raw_text = $obj->get_raw_text(1);
 # or not
 my $raw_text = $obj->get_raw_text(0);
 # default UTF-8 is on

Return the main text without post-processing (saving all html tags)

get_main_text_with_elements

 # UTF-8
 my $main_text_we = $obj->get_main_text_with_elements(1, ["span", ...]);
 # or not
 my $main_text_we = $obj->get_main_text_with_elements(0, ["span", ...]);
 # default UTF-8 is on

Returns the main text while saving selected html tags. Post-processing is skipped

get_main_images

 # UTF-8
 my $main_images = $obj->get_main_images(1, [hashref], [min_width]);
 # or not
 my $main_images = $obj->get_main_images(0, [hashref], [min_width]);
 # default UTF-8 is on

[hashref] - optional parameter which may (or may not) contain key-value pairs, where key is name of html tag attribute and its value is stop word, which will be ignored with all child tags. Useful for common tags for header/footer/logo etc. [min_width] - optional parameter

build_tree

 my $res = $obj->build_tree($html);

Build flat html tree and returns 1

get_tree

 my $res  = $obj->build_tree($html);
 my $tree = $obj->get_tree(1);

Returns ARRAY with flat html tree

get_tree_by_element_id

 my $element_tree = $obj->get_tree_by_element_id($element->{id}, 1);

Returns ARRAY with flat html tree by element id

get_element_by_name

 my $element = $obj->get_element_by_name("div", 0);

Returns HASH or undef with element by tag name. ARGS: 1) tag name 2) offset

Structure of this element:

 $element = {
        id     => <number>,
        name   => <text>,
        tag_id => <number>,
        prop   => <HASH>,
        level  => <number>,
        start  => <number>,
        stop   => <number>,
        bstart => <number>,
        bstop  => <number>
 };

get_stat_by_element_id

 my $element = $obj->get_stat_by_element_id($element->{id});

Returns HASH with element stats by element id. HASH included: count, all, words, AI_TEXT, AI_LINK, AI_IMG, all_AI_LINK, all_AI_LINK, all_AI_IMG

get_child

 my $element = $obj->get_child(0);

get_parent

 my $element = $obj->get_parent();

get_curr_element

 my $element = $obj->get_curr_element();

get_prev_element

 my $element = $obj->get_prev_element();

get_next_element_curr_level

 my $element = $obj->get_next_element_curr_level();

get_prev_element_curr_level

 my $element = $obj->get_prev_element_curr_level();

set_position

 my $element = $obj->set_position($element);

Set position by element. Returns this element or undef if something is wrong

DESTROY ^

 undef $obj;

Cleaning of all internal structures (HTML tree and other)
