I am kind of new in Perl but I would like to know what would you advise me to use in order to retrieve information allocated in a couple of webpages.
Given [HTML] tables [on web pages] what would be the best way to automatically access the pages, retrieve those tables, and manipulate them? Given that they are both in HTML, would it be enough to just parse the tables?
I know I'm asking this in a Perl forum but if MySQL would be more fitting, please let me know.
Note: I am not asking for you to do any coding, I'm just looking for advice on packages, tools and whatnot that I may use for this.
Thank you very much!
