I am looking for a website or a book that can get me started on parsing XML using Perl. What I want to do is, if I have an XML file that contains some information e.g., size of disks, type of RAID, etc, I need to parse that information so that a count of devices based on device size etc can be obtained. Kindly note that this is just one example of what I want to do. There are many other things that I want to achieve.
I will be searching on Google, but since this forum has come across as a place of genuine advice which is way way better than what I might find on Google, kindly let me know how I should go about this. I currently know basics of Perl. Should I get familiar with more advanced concepts and then try my hand at XML Parsing? Any book you would suggest? Please help me.
