It may be that XML::Writer is helpful. Consider:

#!/usr/lib/perl use strict; use warnings; use XML::Writer; my $out; my $xml = XML::Writer->new(OUTPUT => \$out, DATA_MODE => 1, DATA_INDEN +T => ' '); $xml->xmlDecl(); $xml->startTag('doc'); while (<DATA>) { chomp; next if !length; my ($bibData, $quote, $primary, $sec) = / ^([^"]* "[^"]+"[^"]*) ([^\@]+) \@([^%]+) \%(.*) /x; $xml->startTag('entry'); $xml->dataElement(bib => $bibData); $xml->dataElement(quote => $quote); $xml->dataElement(primary => $primary); $xml->dataElement(sec => $sec); $xml->endTag(); } $xml->endTag(); $xml->end(); print $out; __DATA__ Leyson, Captain Burr.
