       HTML::Parse - Deprecated, a wrapper around HTML::TreeBuilder

       This document describes version 5.03 of HTML::Parse, released September 22, 2012 as part
       of HTML-Tree.

	 See the documentation for HTML::TreeBuilder

       Disclaimer: This module is provided only for backwards compatibility with earlier versions
       of this library.  New code should not use this module, and should really use the
       HTML::Parser and HTML::TreeBuilder modules directly, instead.

       The "HTML::Parse" module provides functions to parse HTML documents.  There are two
       functions exported by this module:

       parse_html($html) or parse_html($html, $obj)
	   This function is really just a synonym for $obj->parse($html) and $obj is assumed to
	   be a subclass of "HTML::Parser".  Refer to HTML::Parser for more documentation.

	   If $obj is not specified, the $obj will default to an internally created new
	   "HTML::TreeBuilder" object configured with strict_comment() turned on.  That class
	   implements a parser that builds (and is) a HTML syntax tree with HTML::Element objects
	   as nodes.

	   The return value from parse_html() is $obj.

       parse_htmlfile($file, [$obj])
	   Same as parse_html(), but pulls the HTML to parse, from the named file.

	   Returns "undef" if the file could not be opened, or $obj otherwise.

       When a "HTML::TreeBuilder" object is created, the following variables control how parsing
       takes place:

	   Setting this variable to true will instruct the parser to try to deduce implicit
	   elements and implicit end tags.  If this variable is false you get a parse tree that
	   just reflects the text as it stands.  Might be useful for quick & dirty parsing.
	   Default is true.

	   Implicit elements have the implicit() attribute set.

	   This variable contols whether unknow tags should be represented as elements in the
	   parse tree.	Default is true.

	   Do not represent the text content of elements.  This saves space if all you want is to
	   examine the structure of the document.  Default is false.

	   Call warn() with an appropriate message for syntax errors.  Default is false.

       HTML::TreeBuilder objects should be explicitly destroyed when you're finished with them.
       See HTML::TreeBuilder.
