in reply to XML::DOM extracting digits between 2 tags

I haven't worked with XML::DOM before (I usually use XML::Smart), but here's a working example that extracts the zipcode field from the example data you provided:

use strict; use warnings; use XML::DOM; my $xml = ''; $xml .= $_ for <DATA>; my $parser = XML::DOM::Parser->new; my $doc = $parser->parse($xml); my $result_list = $doc->getElementsByTagName('Result'); my $result_count = $result_list->getLength; for my $result_n (0..($result_count - 1)) { my $result = $result_list->item($result_n); my $zip_nodes = $doc->getElementsByTagName('Zip'); my $zip = $zip_nodes->item(0)->getChildNodes->item(0)->getData; print "zipcode: $zip\n"; } __DATA__ <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <ResultSet> <Result precision="address"> <Latitude>37.416384</Latitude> <Longitude>-122.024853</Longitude> <Address>701 FIRST AVE</Address> <City>SUNNYVALE</City> <State>CA</State> <Zip>94089-1019</Zip> <Country>US</Country> </Result> </ResultSet>
It should have some additional error handling for malformed documents, but that's easy enough to add.
