in thread map <IF> to hash with replacement

I understand this is well intentioned but I think it's bad advice. XML::Twig, XML::Rules, and XML::LibXML are probably all to be preferred over XML::Parser; I'd argue the libxml wrapper is definitely a better choice. And XML::Simple is anything but; it's a maze of special cases and their mapping parameters. It can be a very useful module but I wouldn't recommend it without knowing the problem and input at hand.

    I would use XML::Simple. It's dead easy to bring XML in as Perl structures.
    use XML::Simple qw{XMLin}; print keys %{XMLin("<root><x>1</x><y>2</y></root>")};
    This prints "xy".
