in thread perl xml format question

Hi Tobyink, Thank you for your super-prompt and helpful response. I was getting the following error when i tried to use the code

my $field = $metadata->addNewChild(undef, 'field'); %$field = ( name => $col, alias => "a".++$alias_num, );

I got the error "Not a HASH reference at line 52". Any idea what i need to change to avoid this error

I also got the following error "Issuing rollback() due to DESTROY without explicit disconnect() of DBD::Oracle::db handle (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(HOST=IN1NPDVMPMT02)(PROTOCOL=tcp)(PORT=1521))"

    Are you using an oldish version of XML::LibXML perhaps?

    The ability to handle an element's attributes like a hash was only added in 1.91 IIRC.

    You can use setAttribute in older versions.

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

      Thanks, i was using an older version since ppm was only able to find/install the older version (XML::LibXML 1.7). After using setAttribute i was able to get the desired output. My database error is also gone. Thank you Tobyink
