Re^2: XML::Simple - Handling inconsistencyby Jenda (Abbot)

It's possible and advised to give xml2XMLRules not one but several xml files. That way you are more likely to catch all optional tag attributes and repeatable tags. If you have a DTD it's better to use dtd2XMLRules.
<note>xml2XMLRules and dtd2XMLRules are scripts installed with the XML::Rules module. All they do is that they call the XML::Rules::inferRulesFromExample() and XML::Rules::inferRulesFromDTD() subroutines and print the inferred rules. The inferred rules instruct XML::Rules to build a minimal consistent data structure out of your XML (only tags that may be repeated are turned to arrays, only tags that may have attributes are turned to hashes etc.).</note>
There's a short writeup on this in Simpler than XML::Simple.
