Parsing NDFD with XML::Simpleby johnfl68 (Beadle)

johnfl68 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello all, and thank you for your time.
I'm trying to work with some data from the US National Weather Service, using the NDFD SOAP server.
I am able to get the data from the server fine, and can read the XML file with XML::Simple, and have done a "Dummper" of the output (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2859483/NDFDdumpper.txt), so I think so far I am going in the right direction. But in trying several different XML::Simple examples for getting the data out of the data string for the XML file, I get responses like "HASH(0x4f01dc0)" or with another means I got "Unquoted string "conditions" may clash with future reserved word at forecast.pl line 28." and the same for the other defined items in the XML.
I am sure I am not the only one that has tried to get data from the NDFD, I have run across a few threads in searching google that are here, but using the search here keeps saying that there are none.
If anyone knows of some good working examples that I could look at, it would be appreciated.
