in reply to Choosing the best XML module for a toy system

I investigated several XML modules a couple of years ago, including the ones mentioned above, and ended up choosing XML::Smart. I recommend it.

    I must strongly disagree that XML::Smart is a good idea, unless your needs are trivial — it is one of the buggiest Perl XML handlers I have had the misfortune to attempt to use. The mere act of setting one element equal to another caused some of the methods to stop working after the assignment. I wish I could provide a more concrete example, but I nuked the code I was testing with after I gave up on making it work reliably.

[atcroft]: abner: Do you mean something like SELECT `foo`, `bar` FROM `table_name' WHERE (( `foo` = "asdf" ) OR ( `bar` = 'asdw' )); Or something else?
[abner]: yes. i am familiar with mysql but ignorant about how to get around the fact that placeholders can only represent single scalar values.
[abner]: my $sth = $dbh->prepare(' SELECT * FROM charge WHERE cpt = ?') or die "Couldn't prepare statement: " . $dbh->errstr;
