How to Process and Simplify Facebook Post and Comment Text Automatically Using Perl

If you’ve ever copied a post and its comments and pasted the text, you’ll know that there is a lot of extra information that you don’t need, cluttering up your screen.

That’s why I created a Perl script to process that text and simplify it by removing all the unnecessary lines of text.

I wrote this script for myself and it might be useful for you too, so I’m sharing it here.

There is a use-case of this script here: How to Easily Copy and Save Content You Created on Facebook.

If you’d like me to create a custom script for you, let me know. I am available for hire as a freelancer on UpWork. My profile is here.
