If XML::Simple is installed, use xml::simple; on Windows will not raise an error related to xml::simple or XML::Simple:

>perl -Mxml::simple -e "XMLin()" Undefined subroutine &main::XMLin called at -e line 1. >perl -MXML::Simple -e "XMLin()" Could not find -e.xml in .\ at -e line 1

Because file systems on Windows are generally case insensitive, you can load modules under various names. As package names under Perl still are case sensitive, their ->import() method will not be called, which is confusing.

In my opinion, it would have been more helpful to directly tell the OP that there is no module xml::simple.
