Wow, very fast; thnx for the pointer.
BUT....the output is very
densebloated. Every leaf node is a full hash,
and it tries to preserve comments and attributes. Which is great if the output is going to be turned back into XML...but I just want the values/attributes keyed by their names, so I can create a reasonably compressed piece of JSON to send to the browser.
I'm taking a stab at patching it w/ a "compact" option to achieve that and see how it
Hacked it up to support both a compact mode, and a to_json() method;
XML::Simple + XML::LibXML + JSON::XS : ~0.6 sec
XML::Bare w/ hacks: 0.04 sec (yes, 40 millisecs)
I think I've found my favorite XML parser 8^))
