in thread XMLin question

Because those active on p5p are among the possible sources of an answer to an extremely esoteric question; an answer that probably would otherwise require the OP have the experience, knowledge and patience to profit by digging thru perlguts and who-knows-what-else.

On the other hand, if you, Anonymonk, can answer it here, I'll be delighted to upvote a brief and correct exposition that's accessible to those of less than Perl Porter stature (like /me).


If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!

    p5p does not develop or maintain XML::Simple, asking them about XML::Simple is offtopic and annoying

    Wait, what? What question?

      OK; your first para makes a valid point. So ask Grant McLean <grantm@cpan.org>, the author of XML::Simple, after carefully reading http://search.cpan.org/~grantm/XML-Simple-2.20/lib/XML/Simple.pm -- but note the lastest copywrite notice is dated 2004.

    Esoteric question? The question is typical for people who have only a vague notion of what XML is, and therefore they don't know the basic rules of XML, and they are trying to parse broken XML.
