in reply to How to create XML tree from non-XML source

Hi H4,

You can try to use XML::Simple' XMLout as long as you have a perl hash representing the data you want to write to XML.
use XML::Simple qw(XMLout); my $data={book=>[{name=>"test",author=>"H3"},{name=>"test2",author=>"H +4"}]}; print XMLout($data,NoAttr=>1,RootName=>"books");

    Thanks for your input. Unfortunately, XML::Simple does not preserve the ordering of subnodes because it uses hashes rather than lists. In your example, there is no way of telling whether <name> or <author> should appear first in the resulting XML. Sorry I forgot to mention that, in my case, order does matter.
