Hi, Thank you, but I am unable to figure out my exact requirement from a huge pool of info there in "state of web spidering in perl". Can you specify exactly which matches my req ? Thanks, Bala.
Well, I only link examples in one post, so that one :) and they all match your spec, they're all about extracting "tags" from xml ...
As Corion says, LibXML is one of the best choices available, use xpather.pl on your xml file to get a list of xpaths you can use to extract data you want (or url, but its better to download url to file for testing/development/until you figure stuff out )
examples of extracting "tags" are at Re: Stepping up from XML::Simple to XML::LibXML, Re^5: Parsing xml using libXML, Re: Nested XML Question,
