in reply to Stepping up from XML::Simple to XML::LibXML

The example is an xml fragment, can you show one using a real xml file? One with a default namespace declared... It appears if you have: <library xmlns=""> </library> Then what would the xpath queries look like?

    This is the exact problem I am trying to solve now (namespace defined at library).
    I added:
    my $xc = XML::LibXML::XPathContext->new($doc);<br/> $xc->registerNs('ns', 'xmlapi_1.0');
    and changed the foreach to:
    foreach my $book ($xc->findnodes('//ns:book')) {

    But no matter what I try, I can't get book's attributes. I know I'm getting the info (print $book->to_literal, "\n";) but how do I access the info individually?

      That problem was addressed in a separate thread. I meant to provide a link from here but then I forgot.

      Aristotle provided a comprehensive answer in this node.

        Thanks grantm. Please see me reply to that post. I'm still missing... something!
