HTML::TableParser::TabUser)Contributed Perl DocumenHTML::TableParser::Table(3)

       HTML::TableParser::Table	- support class	for HTML::TableParser

       This class is used to keep track	of information related to a table and
       to create the information passed	back to	the user callbacks.  It	is in
       charge of marshalling the massaged header and row data to the user

       An instance is created when the controlling TableParser class finds a
       "<table"	tag.  The object is given an id	based upon which table it is
       to work on.  Its	methods	are invoked from the TableParser callbacks
       when they run across an appropriate tag ("tr", "th", "td").  The	object
       is destroyed when the matching "/table" tag is found.

       Since tables may	be nested, multiple HTML::TableParser::Table objects
       may exist simultaneously.  HTML::TableParser uses two pieces of
       information held	by this	class -- ids and process.  The first is	an
       array of	table ids, one element per level of table nesting.  The	second
       is a flag indicating whether this table is being	processed (i.e.	it
       matches a requested table) or being ignored.  Since HTML::TableParser
       uses the	ids information	from an	existing table to initialize a new
       table, it first creates an empty	sentinel (place	holder)	table (by
       calling the HTML::TableParser::Table constructor	with no	arguments).

       The class handles missing "/tr",	"/td", and "/th" tags.	As such
       (especially when	handling multi-row headers) user callbacks may be
       slightly	delayed	(and data cached).  It also handles rows with
       overlapping columns
