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

Actually I've tried it a few ways:

  • Explicitly including in the source document
  • Manually appending it as the data is read
  • Using the options in XML::Parser to force an encoding

The file did initially come without declarations. The structure itself is a single file with a header and footer lines where each line in between is a distinct XML document (newline delimited obviously).
The program reads through one line at a time and feeds these lines individually to XML::Simple, where it parses them and outputs the relevant values before discarding the data and reading the next. e.g.

HEADER0002 <?xml .. ?><document><colour>red</colour><cost>10</cost></document> <?xml .. ?><document><colour>blue</colour><cost>14</cost></document> .... .... etc FOOTER0002
