Extracting links from a string

Ok theres regular expression that will extract links from a url or file such as
#!/usr/bin/perl -n -00
while ( /<\s*A\s+HREF\s*=\s*(["'])(.*?)\1.*?>/gi ) {
         print "$2\n";
}

I need a sub routine that I can pass a string and extract the links from a string. Is there anyway I can adapt Tom Christiansen work, or does anyone know how I can do this?
Cheers
Ryan
