( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thanks, Jenda, and Anonymous Monk, I am trying to parse through a huge kml file that contains longitude and latitude coordinates for census blocks and pull out only those long and lat coords that pertain to certain blocks within a subset of census tracts. I will have CDATA information to parse through to get the tract and block numbers, but right now I am just trying to test code on pulling out the long and lat coordinates that are denoted by a <coordinates> tag in the xml.

In other words, right now, I want to extract information only if the Start handler indicates a <coordinates> tag. That's why I am looking for a way to conditionally switch to a different handler.

Sorry for the long-winded answer.

Hope this helps.

XML::Twig looks interesting, but I was hoping to stick with a more SAX-like parser rather than DOM-like or pull-parser like.

Would you also suggest XML::Twig?

Thanks again.
