diamondsandperls has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Once upon a time I used the script provided at the below link for parsing xml to something easier in order to pull out refs. I did not save my command line syntax and for whatever reason or another I can no longer get this to work properly. Any help is appreciated.

    I tried this but I saw this script works just fine. How do you invoke the program? I did like this.

    perl target.xml SOMETHING 1
    With XML::Twig, similar things would go like this.
    use strict;use warnings; use XML::Twig; my $xmlfile=$ARGV[0]; my $values_flag=$ARGV[0] || 0; my $twig =XML::Twig->new( twig_handlers => {'//*' => sub { my($twig,$elt)=@_; if ( $elt->descendants == 1 ){ print $elt->path; print " := " . $elt->first_child_text if ( $values_fla +g ); print "\n"; } } }, )->parsefile($xmlfile);

      thanks got it to go
