How to use perl to parsing a XML file to csv file which have the same sequence in xml file? The following XML file called booklist.xml, in example:

<book> <author>Book 1 author 1</author> <author>Book 1 author 2</author> <title>Book 1 title</title> <isbn>Book1ISBN</isbn> </book>

Example of Converting from XML to a Perl hash record

#!/usr/bin/perl # Script to illustrate how to parse a simple XML file # and dump its contents in a Perl hash record. use strict; use XML::Simple; use Data::Dumper; my $booklist = XMLin('booklist.xml'); print Dumper($booklist);

Running this script outputs the following:

$VAR1 = { 'book' => { 'isbn' => 'Book1ISBN', 'title' => 'Book 1 title', 'author' => [ 'Book 1 author 1', 'Book 1 author 2' ] } }

But hope we can get the sequence like this:

$VAR1 = { 'book' => { 'author' => [ 'Book 1 author 1', 'Book 1 author 2' ] 'title' => 'Book 1 title', 'isbn' => 'Book1ISBN', } }
