in reply to Reversible parsing (with Parse::RecDescent?)

this is not a 'humpty dumpty' operation it is possible .... but I agree with other responses in that it will be difficult to have perfect 'round tripping'.

btw (note: this is unrelated to your problem, just noticed you might be working with XML) have you considered using XML::Descent

    Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. I checked out XML::Descent; it looks like a descent enough module (pun intended), but deals on the right side of my ascii-art design diagram, which was solved well enough with Data::Serializer and XML::Dumper for now. As I go from proof-of-concept to reality, I'll definitely consider it, thanks.

    #my sig used to say 'I humbly seek wisdom. '. Now it says:
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    I humbly seek wisdom.

      I built a first iteration of an XSLT lint checker using this module ... in the end I decided to use some other technology but I found the module well built and the concept better then rolling your own in RecDescent when it comes to working with XML. hth, Jim Fuller
