in thread XML module which one

...but when I get data from the form (many name = value results it looks like I would have to manually enter them in another script right? I was hopping to have a script that opened up the form results and could draw the key = value results in an XML document.

What do you mean 'another script'? Even if you had to retrieve each name/value pair one by one and insert them in a hash, then feed the hash to XML::Simple to create the xml, you would do it all in the same script. Moreover, you do not have to retrieve the form data one name/value at a time--because the cgi module makes the form data available to you as a hash. See the section titled FETCHING THE PARAMETER LIST AS A HASH in the cgi docs. Then you can pass that hash as an argument to XMLout() to produce the xml.

    I wouldn't recommend XML::Simple and CGI->Vars to anyone, especially newbies, too many caveats
