I have been doing some HTML scraping and today a fellow coder told me about this thing 'DOM' and how much easier it is to use it rather than manipulating strings as I have been doing. He doesn't know much about it, and that's why I came here asking for your help.
I have been googling about it and seen some example code and I was immediately drawn by it. However, I haven't been able to install a library that allows me to do it. This one - libxml2dom - looked great but I haven't been able to install it on my machine. My OS is Windows.
I have noticed that most of the libraries are focused towards XML, but will they work with HTML, too?
Do you use DOM for your HTML scraping? Which library do you use?
