I'm trying to have the following script parse

From the following url

use LWP::Simple;
use HTML::TokeParser;

my $html = get '';
my $p = HTML::TokeParser->new( \$html );

while ( my $table = $p->get_tag('table') ) {
last if $table->[1]{class} and
$table->[1]{class} eq 'item_description';
print $p->get_trimmed_text('/td');


How did you know to use $table->[1]{class} and say not $table->[0]
{class}? Is there something in the documentation that I missed?
