There is more than one way to skin the XML cat with Perl. I believe, correct me if i am
wrong, that you are more used to a DOM approach if you used VBScript. While i don't
particularly care for the DOM, there is XML::DOM. XML::Simple is great if you want
to quickly turn an XML document into an anonymous data structure, which i like to consider an
object that isn't an object. ;)
XML::Smart has been getting a lot of good word these days ... it basically removes some of
the headache of knowing what you are parsing ahead of time. Then there is the LibXML
modules, not to metion XML::SAX, XML::XPath, and XML::Twig. Of
course, these all require that you know how to install modules, and as kutsu recommended,
tachyon's tut is very good stuff. Let us know if you have any more questions and good luck!
