Bug#509095: ITP: libhtml-strip-perl -- strip HTML markup from text

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Damyan Ivanov <dmn@debian.org>

* Package name    : libhtml-strip-perl
  Version         : 1.06
  Upstream Author : Alex Bowley <kilinrax@cpan.org>
* URL             : http://search.cpan.org/dist/HTML-Strip/
* License         : same as Perl (Artistic or GPL-1+)
  Programming Lang: C (Perl XS)
  Description     : strip HTML markup from text

HTML::Strip simply strips HTML-like markup from text in a very quick and
brutal manner. It could quite easily be used to strip XML or SGML from
text as well.

It is written in XS, and thus about five times quicker than using
regular expressions for the same task.

It does not do any syntax checking (if you want that, use HTML::Parser).


Needed by clive-utils 2.0.0. Will be maintained by the Debian Perl
Group. Help preparing the actual package under DPG SVN trunk/
