in reply to XPath-like method for searching/editing structures

There are a number of modules that offer XPath-like syntax for drilling down into nested Perl data structures. One is my own JSON::Path which implements the JsonPath specification which also has freely available PHP, Javascript and C# (.NET) implementations.

JSON::Path also has links to various other similar Perl modules that I found in its SEE ALSO section.

I do like that Data::Diver lvalue feature. I may have to steal that.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    This basically what I am looking for, except that it only does searching and not editing. If you end up "stealing" the lvalue feature, I'd love to know about it. I'm actually asking quite a bit ahead of time of my needing this functionality.
