in reply to XML Module

The easiest way to do that is to use XML::Simple. However, it isn't the fastest module if your XML documents are really large and you only need to work with certain pieces of it. For cases like that I'd suggest using XML::Twig or the previously mentioned XML::Parser.

Hope that helps!

    I myself dislike XML::Simple because not only it's not very fast but it has some questionable default behaviours, like the infamous KeyAttr options (in last week only, no less than 3 questions here in SoPW were related to this "feature").

    I believe that simple should mean "simple", not "simple if you want to do things my way only".

    Careful with that hash Eugene.
