please provide a self-reproducing test case for this bug, which does not depend on needlessly fetching external resources, which does not contain proprietary data or markup, and which is as minimal as possible. See: http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/resources/how-to-contribute-to-my-projects/HACKING.html Regards, — Shlomi Fish Regards, -- Shlomi Fish

Resolving as OLD due to lack of response and cooperation from the original poster. /me sighs for the fact that it happens quite a lot - why can't people be more responsive?

Re-opening. Can't work out why the author couldn't do this: Get the content of http://www.gravestonephotos.co m/public/findfamily.php?name=b rooks Write a 3 line program: use XML::libXML; my $content = # the contents of the above get $doc = XML::LibXML->load_html(string => $content); It seems too many authors would rather close a bug than spend one minute investigating it. Sigh. Why can't more authors have pride in their code?

Have you actually read my previous comment with the request? The page you've pointed is marked "© copyright Gravestone Photographic Resource 1998 - 2012" and as such is under a proprietary, non-free-as-in-speech, non-open-source/non-open-content licence which I cannot really use in my code. Furthermore, the page is likely to be overloaded with a lot of data that will distract from the bug report, and the bug report should have a more meaningful reproduction recipe. Show quoted text

Yes, and that's because the bug reporters are not cooperative. Show quoted text

Fine, but see: http://blogs.perl.org/users/toby_inkster/2012/07/10-out-of-10.html Regards, -- Shlomi Fish

Oh, and here is my request: please read the page, the HACKING.html file and provide a *minimal* test case that reproduces this problem and is under the same terms as Perl itself or a compatible open-source licence, that we can reuse and peruse (not something © Copyright, "all rights reserved"). Else I'll have to close this bug report again.

Closing again due to lack of responsiveness. If you can comply with my wishes and provide that test case, please comment and by that reopen the bug. Regards, -- Shlomi Fish
