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

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

SYNOPSIS
	 See the documentation for HTML::TreeBuilder

DESCRIPTION
       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:

       $HTML::Parse::IMPLICIT_TAGS
	   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.

       $HTML::Parse::IGNORE_UNKNOWN
	   This variable contols whether unknow tags should be represented as elements in the
	   parse tree.	Default is true.

       $HTML::Parse::IGNORE_TEXT
	   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.

       $HTML::Parse::WARN
	   Call warn() with an appropriate message for syntax errors.  Default is false.

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