Re^8: Is there any XML reader like this? (XML::Simple beats LibXML hands down in the speed stakes!)by BrowserUk (Pope)

If you don't need to do that sort of stuff, then perhaps there's a mismatch between your needs and XML::LibXML's aims.
Finally, we agree on something.
Most, not all, but most, of my XML needs are for gaining read-only access to relatively small volumes of simple data. Unencoded, with no namespaces or CDATA with no need to look at comments. Mostly configuration data, RDF feeds and similar. Things for which XML::Simple is ideal and XML::LibXML is simply overkill.
Ie. Exactly the sort if simple XML shown by the OP above. The same data for which you suggested he abandon the simple, easy to use, clearly documented tool he was using in favour of an the over-engineered, horribly documented, behemoth of a chainsaw that is XML::LibXML.
Just as I don't use a chainsaw to trim my toenails, I use the XML tool that suits my purpose.
