Wouldn't you know it :) xpath allows ignoring namespaces by using functions name and local-name, and the current node (.) comes in handy , heady even

#!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; use XML::LibXML; my $doc = XML::LibXML->new()->parse_string( q{<?xml version='1.0' ?> <roshambo xmlns="http://example.com/roshambo"> <sham> <bo name="40" /> <bo name="2" /> </sham> <sham xmlns:ftt="http://example.com/roshambo"> <ftt:bo name="forty" /> <ftt:bo name="two" /> </sham> </roshambo> } ); for my $name ( $doc->findnodes( q{//*[local-name()="bo"]/@name} ) ) { printf "%-25s %s\n", $name->nodePath, $name->nodeValue; } print "\n\n"; for my $node ( $doc->findnodes( q{//*[name()="sham"]} ) ) { print "@{[ $node->nodePath ]}\n"; ## any children ## ./* ## any descendants ## .//* ## anywhere ## //* for my $name ( $node->findnodes( q{./*[local-name()="bo"]/@name} ) + ) { printf "%-25s %s\n", $name->nodePath, $name->nodeValue; } print "\n\n"; } __END__ /*/*[1]/*[1]/@name 40 /*/*[1]/*[2]/@name 2 /*/*[2]/ftt:bo[1]/@name forty /*/*[2]/ftt:bo[2]/@name two /*/*[1] /*/*[1]/*[1]/@name 40 /*/*[1]/*[2]/@name 2 /*/*[2] /*/*[2]/ftt:bo[1]/@name forty /*/*[2]/ftt:bo[2]/@name two
