in thread XPATH DOM traverse html/xml

XML::Twig is one of the many things that keeps me using Perl. (It's one of the modules my personal '' module loads -- '' so I can do perl -MM -lwe ....) So, thanks again, mirod.

The first thing that came to mind was:

perl -MXML::Twig -E 'XML::Twig->new( twig_handlers => { _all_ => sub { say $_->xpath } })->parsefile(shift)'

...which isn't so different from what you wrote. But, the following has the benefit of not requiring the loading of the entire file (correct?):

perl -MXML::Twig -E 'XML::Twig->new( start_tag_handlers => { _all_ => sub { say $_->xpath } })->parsefile(shift)'

    Absolutely, the way you wrote it is more efficient. I just went for the easiest way I could think of, not knowing enough about the OP's exact constraints.
