in reply to request for help on working with XML::Simple

Don't forget XML::LibXML
use XML::LibXML; #Parse XML my $template = 'xmldocument.xml'; my $parser = XML::LibXML->new(); my $pdoc = $parser->parse_file($template); #Remember the namespace my $rdoc = XML::LibXML::XPathContext->new($pdoc->documentElement()); $rdoc->registerNs( ns => 'http://url/Schema' ); #Find desired node(s) my @stuff = $rdoc->findnodes("//ns:source_name"); #Print results for(@stuff) { my $data = $_->textContent; print"$data\n"; }

[james28909]: i figured out a neet trick
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, what neat trick?
[james28909]: now if i have packed a script into a PDK exe, and misplaced the source, i can print it.
[james28909]: but you have to prepare for it first by adding this to the source
[james28909]: seek DATA, 0, 0; while (<DATA>) { print; }
[Lady_Aleena]: Sounds interesting. Have you written a meditation or cool use for it?
[Lady_Aleena]: It might be something PerlMonks at large would be interested in.
