in reply to Quick Fix for PerlMonks modules

There are already a bunch of fixes available at PerlMonks modules 2.0. Zzamboni recently moved the modules to sourceforge, and asked wether anyone wanted them continued. Some people did, some didn't but as far as I could see he did not fix them.

Also, you might want to get in contact with Jouke, who expressed interest in taking over the modules from Zzamboni, but I haven't heard from either of them since.

    Thanks for the info, Joost. I know that it must have been already discussed here, somewhere in the monastery, I just couldn't find it.

    However, after looking at the fixes posted at PerlMonks modules 2.0, I notice none of the them touch the real problem: not doing XML parsing in a sane way. For example, they all will simply fail if there are spaces between an attribute and its value. Probably after some refinement, one can eventually ends up with a regex that will really work. But I think it's much simpler to use a good XML module to do that job.

      I know, I started to replace some of the mathing with XML::Simple but I simply got bored with it, especially because I think it is time for a complete rewrite for these modules.
