in reply to parsing complex xml structure with xml::simple

You may find XML::TreeBuilder easier to deal with than XML::Simple for non-trivial XML:

use strict; use warnings; use XML::TreeBuilder; my $xmlStr = <<'STR';
<root> <Check> <Detail> <Head> <Col>User</Col> <Col>Weak Password</Col> <Col>Locked Out</Col> <Col>Disabled</Col> </Head> <Row Grade="0"> <Col>Guest</Col> <Col>Weak</Col> <Col>-</Col> <Col>Disabled</Col> </Row> <Row Grade="0"> <Col>SUPPORT_388945a0</Col> <Col>-</Col> <Col>-</Col> <Col>Disabled</Col> </Row> <Row Grade="5"> <Col>Administrator</Col> <Col>-</Col> <Col>-</Col> <Col>-</Col> </Row> </Detail> </Check> <Check> <Detail> <Head> <Col>Drive Letter</Col> <Col>File System</Col> </Head> <Row Grade="5"> <Col>C:</Col> <Col>NTFS</Col> </Row> </Detail> </Check> </root>
STR my $tree = XML::TreeBuilder->new; $tree->parse ($xmlStr); for ($tree->find ('Detail')) { for ($_->find ('Row')) { print "Col: " . $_->as_text () . "\n" for ($_->find ('Col')); } }

Prints:

Col: Guest Col: Weak Col: - Col: Disabled Col: SUPPORT_388945a0 Col: - Col: - Col: Disabled Col: Administrator Col: - Col: - Col: - Col: C: Col: NTFS
