Re^6: Is there any XML reader like this?
in thread Is there any XML reader like this?
What if the addition was:
<ip note="UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES USE THIS IP ON PAIN OF SUBSTANTIAL LEGAL REPRISALS; INCLUDING EXTRADITION AND LIFE IMPRISONMENT">188.8.131.52</ip>
which your LibXML program will blithely process in just the same way as every other IP it finds
And your XML::Simple example with NoAttr => 1 will also blithely process in just the same way as every other IP it finds. What exactly was your point?
