[1] http://www.unix.org/version3/apis/cu.html has a complete list

Assuming it’s not a spoiler, following is the contents of the first

parse/string HTML.)

Sure there is.

require ‘rubygems’; require ‘hpricot’; require ‘open-uri’
doc = Hpricot(open(‘http://www.unix.org/version3/apis/cu.html’))
puts (doc/“p.tent/i”).map{|i|i.inner_html}

Hpricot makes HTML scraping fun again (no, really!).

Thanks Why!
