glassbead has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi brother monks, I'd very much appreciate some help, and some opinions on this particular problem. |I'm pretty new to perl, and I've inherited a project, which involves processing xml documents, and "translating" them into another xml structure. Best illustrated by an example of the kind of thing involved. <Lines> <Characters>O wghat a piece of work is man!</Characters> <Characters>So noble in reason, so infinite in faculty</Characters> <Characters>New paragraph starts here</Characters> </Lines> I need to output the xml file, but insert paragraph tags where appropriate. I also need to do some analysis of the data. I think I may need an abbot's help with this one! Thanks for any help,

    It all depends on your background and preferences. Apart from those already mentioned, I'd suggest having a look at XML::Rules (It's mine so, you know, I have to do some advertising now and then). Its filter mode might be exactly what you need.

    P.S.: Please use <code> tags around snippets of code, examples of XML etc.
