in reply to Create hash from XML file

Hi ashok13123,

It is always best to use XML modules to parse these kind of files. Anyhow since it is simple one you can also use regex way.

Also in your xml file you have given in first <cat>

<cat> <channel>
I think it should be
<cat> <channelName>

Here is one way to accomplish your task.

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $input = " <cat> <channelName>CHANNEL123</channelName> <name>CATEGORY123</name> <shortName>TopCategory</shortName> <description>This is TopCategory channel's Category</description> <shortDescription>This is TopCategory channel's Category</shortDescrip +tion> <parentID>0</parentID> <categoryTags>Vod;Download</categoryTags> </cat> <cat> <channelName>Channel456</channelName> <name>cat456</name> <shortName>TopCategory</shortName> <description>This is TopCategory channel's Category</description> <shortDescription>This is TopCategory channel's Category</shortDescrip +tion> <parentID>0</parentID> <categoryTags>Vod;Download</categoryTags> </cat> <cat> <channelName>chann678</channelName> <name>cat678</name> <shortName>TopCategory</shortName> <description>This is TopCategory channel's Category</description> <shortDescription>This is TopCategory channel's Category</shortDescrip +tion> <parentID>0</parentID> <categoryTags>Vod;Download</categoryTags> </cat> "; my %hash; while ($input =~ /<channelName>((?:(?!<\/channelName>).)*)<\/channelNa +me>\s*<name>((?:(?!<\/name>).)*)<\/name>/gs){ $hash{$1} = $2; } print Dumper \%hash; output: ------- $VAR1 = { 'Channel456' => 'cat456', 'chann678' => 'cat678', 'CHANNEL123' => 'CATEGORY123' };

[hippo]: In that case, use Net::SMTPS and also encrypt your content before you send it eg. with Crypt::GPG
[1nickt]: hippo You suggest this as a transport agent for Email::Sender, or ...? Just for the record Email::Sender:: Transport::SMTP has SSL/TLS support built-in (and some shiny RJBS extras like "partial success" ...)
[Perl300]: ok
