Re: Why oh why is working with XML so bloomin' difficult in Perl?

LOL! Don't forget the rusty tiddly winks. ;-) It is a difficult thing to do to work with XML in any language. XML::Simple as mentioned earlier seems to be perfect for simpler XML documents/streams. I'm not certain how effective using Rules will be with large complex documents. There is only one way to find out though... thanks everyone for all the suggestions.
