Re^2: XML-Twig: more efficient tree processing

in thread XML-Twig: more efficient tree processing

I tried that. All is seems to do is spit back out the XML on the terminal output (unless it's suppose to do that). I am reading the XML for extracting info then I am done, so printing the tree serves no purpose. This is like closing a file after reading for input; There is no need to print the file when the file is closed.

Is there a way to flush silently?

    It is suppose to do that, just change:

    $twig->flush;

    to

    $twig->purge;

[james28909]: yep, i am scraping a websites date/time stamp from an article. none of that is relevant though because the strings i get are as expected. the returned data from the website is the list of @weekdays
[james28909]: i need to convert those @weekdays to an numerical date based off of scalar localtime
[james28909]: i have thught about this and though about it lol
[james28909]: also remember, that if 'Today' is may 1, then Yesterday is not may 31 lol
[james28909]: theoretically speaking ofcourse
