Is there a non-toolbox alternative for decodeHTMLEntities

7 views (last 30 days)
I'm scraping data from the web and I noticed that some text contains html entities (& ,   etc.). Now I've found that I could use decodeHTMLEntities, but it requires the Text Analytics Toolbox. Is there also a non-toolbox / free function to decode html entities ?
I know I could probably just write my own function to encode/decode it but I dont really want to waste my time doing that.

Because of the lack of (quick) responses, I've made my own function which I made available here. It comes with a file called entities.mat, which contains the characters and corresponding html entities.
