I'm new to perl and have a question about regexps that hopefully one of you 
can help with.

I'm trying to parse out links from web pages, so essentially I have a string 
of the form:

<A href= .................... </A>

So what I want to do is find an expression to match against that.

Secondly, if there is an easy way to put the contents of href="...." into a 
variable, that would be most useful too!

I think the expression should look something like (assume string in $str):

   if ($str =~ m/\<A\a+\<\/\A\>/  ) { ...} 

but then I'm unsure about where the matched text would end up - in $2?

Any help greatly appreciated
