in reply to How do I parse values of a complex anonymous hash of hashes?

It's hard to answer this question without seeing the data structure, but here are a few clues.

Use Data::Dumper to see what the hash looks like:

use Data::Dumper; print header('text/plain'); print Dumper($foo);
If you use forcearray when parsing the XML:
$foo = XMLin($xml, forcearray => 1);
Then you can access the data in a structure like this (which is exactly what Dumper prints):
$foo = { 'INFO' => [ { 'lastchecked' => '20010506070758', 'content' => 'Rendered by the Newest Nodes XML Generator' +, 'site' => 'http://perlmonks.org', 'sitename' => 'Perl Monks' } ] };
With loops like this:
if(defined @{$data->{'INFO'}}){ for my $when(@{$data->{'INFO'}}){ $lastcheck = $when->{'lastchecked'} } }

Super search around perlmonks a bit for more info.
