Should I be using a different module?
I've been told: yes.
I recently recommended XML::Simple in another thread, only to have Your Mother strongly advise against it. I haven't had a chance to use XML::LibXML, XML::Twig and their ilk, so I can't comment on their quality. I have used both XML::Parser and XML::Simple, and can attest that I don't really like them - it's mostly the API I find clunky, although I can't complain about bugs or crashes.
What I can say is that the next time I embark on an XML project, I'll be taking Your Mother's advice and looking into the more modern alternatives on CPAN.
Some food for thought.
