in reply to Replacing a text in XML.

I can see 2 problems. Your XML does not have an element named "href". You need to change elements named "subfield". Your regex is incorrect:

my $twig = XML::Twig->new( twig_handlers => { subfield => \&editHref, }, pretty_print => 'indented', ); $twig->parse($xml); $twig->print; sub editHref { my ( $twig, $href ) = @_; my $text = $href->text(); my $orig = "(OSt)16"; $text =~ s/\Q$orig/(OSt)20/; $href->set_text($text); }

Or, just avoid the regex...

sub editHref { my ( $twig, $href ) = @_; my $text = $href->text(); $href->set_text('(OSt)20') if $text eq '(OSt)16'; }

    Thanks for the reply, Also I have another question to ask, If I want to search through the same XML file for this subfield. <subfield code="0">(OSt)18</subfield> from the database how do I go by it? Thanks.
