This Script Exports Full Bookmark Data to HTML
apart from the first line which has to be "#!/usr/bin/perl" on my system
Thanks for hint.
Oh, yes, the user developed on Windows where a shorter shebang is often used.
I, as a Perl programmer and web dev, had not checked often the source of the PErl program.

@stevegraham -- You're welcome.
In my UNIX days (late 20th century) perl seemed to be installed in a different location on every system I used, so I just put
#!perlin my scripts to find the interpreter on my PATH. I have not used Linux, but I thought it would probably work there too. If not, I could add a note in the documentation.
Were any of the missing libraries outside the list of
usestatements in the script? If so, do you think they would also be worth mentioning in the documentation?
@gjs I had started to dive into the nitty-gritty of bookmarks.html vs Bookmarks (mostly re the missing SHORTCUTURL/nickname thing) and was on the cusp of starting to write my own script when I found yours... thanks for that! It saved me quite some work and seems to do a superb job.
I know the Vivaldi guys have a lot on their plates but adding this to the HTML import is something that especially power users will appreciate.
Again THX and keep up the good work
