I think I'm going to have to look at the Rules documentation. I'm going to be getting several XML files, some designed w/ the format like I described above and some structured like the conventional way of how XML was originally designed (with inner text).
I want to have a program that is robust enough to import the XML file, and create either MySQL or PostgreSQL tables add columns to existing tables (should it need this).
I was hoping that XML::Parser was already set up to be robust enough to get the information, no matter the format, with little programmer intervention (not needing to setup rules). Instead being able to return all the attributes and values for any element, self-closing, or not. :)
Thanks for the help though,
