Subject: Wish: make HTML::Parser an optional dependency to break C-compiler dependency
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 920b
Hello Björn, Thanks for this module. It looks like a nice implementation of HTML character encoding detection. I'm interested in because I'm working with Gisle Aas on breaking LWP's dependency on a C-compiler. To do that, we need a pure-perl implementation of character encoding detection. This module provides one, but it in turn depends on HTML::Parser. My "wish" is that an option be added to install and use this module with HTML::Parser being an *optional* method of determining the encoding. The Makefile.PL and tests would also need to reflect that the dependency is optional. If LWP can ultimately break the dependency on a C-compiler, this useful module will be available in even more places. You can read a thread about the proposal here: http://www.mail-archive.com/libwww@perl.org/msg06733.html It's my follow-up later in the thread that recommends using this module. Thanks, Mark
