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

I used to be sold on XML::Simple for most XML needs, but as planetscape pointed out to me not too long ago, XML::Twig will handle some XML data that XML::Simple simply chokes on.

As I dug a little deeper into XML::Twig I found that it still has a simple mode that one can use, similar to XML::Simple's XMLin() method. In fact, it tries to closely emulate the behavior of XML::Simple when operating in simple mode. But in addition to the simple things, it can do so much more too.

So I've begun re-implementing some of my existing tools using XML::Twig instead, and it gets my recommendation.

    [Eily]: The best example of that is the TGV, they couldn't decide who would get it so it's in the middle of nowhere halfway between the two
