Perl and XML - Reading multiple lines

by scotb (Initiate)
on Jan 11, 2013 at 12:54 UTC ( #1012879=perlquestion: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
scotb has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

my $price = 0; foreach $line(@entry) { if($line =~ m/titleA/) { $price = 1; next; } if($phone) { print "The phone numbers of Family members are:"; print "$line"; $price= 0; } }

I need to search for multiple elements from the XML when the title is matched. The above brings back the price but what if I want to search for another element in the xml when the title is matched?

appreciate your help!

    Welcome to the Monastery, scotb.

    Please, format your question accordingly (Markup in the Monastery).

    We cannot help you much if you do not provide a sample of the input data. Use <code> tags for the data, too.

    To process XML, one usually uses some of the modules that really understand it. See XML::LibXML or XML::Twig.
