The best way to handle different type of XML filesby mahira (Acolyte)
|on Nov 21, 2009 at 12:27 UTC||Need Help??|
mahira has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Currently I am working on a project that will handle several XML files from different sources with different formats (using XML::Simple)
I am trying to handle all of them with a single piece of code but it is hard because nodes are different, depth is different etc.
I am looking for advise. Is XML::Simple the right tool ?
ps: for those who interested I want to give a little more detail; the project is about gathering XML based product data from different vendors and integrating them into our own MySQL db... We have been successfull so far but since it becomes harder to manage different vendors with different scripts, I am trying to reach a more generic solution...
