First rule of programming: don't reinvent the wheel. If this is a school project, then that is the only reason for you do something like this, and in that case show us what your plan of attack is.

Otherwise visit CPAN http://search.cpan.org/ and do a module search for 'html parse'. You will find lots of modules to choose from, and one of them is guaranteed to do what you want, and a lot better than you could do yourself.

As a self-professed 'beginner' you are taking on a very complex task. Take the advice in the previous post and learn the basics of Perl first.
