Help sending and receiving XML request

by virtualweb (Sexton)
on Jan 20, 2013 at 18:09 UTC ( #1014314=perlquestion: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
virtualweb has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello:

Im in Guatemala at noon Sunday Jan 20th with a little free time to learn a new topic in perl.. mainly how to send and receive an XML call or request.

I was going to post this in job.perl.org because I'm willing to give FTP access to my server and reward via PayPal the generous soul that has the patience to connect to Skype today for a few minutes and show my how to use the CPAN module XML::Simple to send and receive the following XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <response> <serviceType>SUBS_REGISTRATION</serviceType> <userWallet>$Email</userWallet> <firstName>$First_name</firstName> <lastName>$Last_Name</lastName> <loggedInUser>$Username</loggedInUser> <password>$Pasword</password> </response>?

If interested just connect to Skype at ID: (sebastian.glanzer)

PS: If this posting is inapropriate here and you have access to jobs.perl.org please post it there for me.. since I couldn't access that site.

Thanx Beforehand
VirtualWeb 12:00 noon Sunday Central Standard Time

    Perlmonks is not a code-writing-for-money site. Rather it is about helping people learning to write Perl code.

    What do you mean by using "XML::Simple to send and receive the following XML file"? XML::Simple cannot "send" anything.

      Thanx for the quick reply CountZero:

      I know that perlmonks.org is for helping those who need help with their code, (no money), but I need a little more than that.. I don't even understand the logic of XML calls and requests.

      So more than just suggesting with a posting here some ideas how a piece of code would work.. I need someone to connect to Skype, add a few lines of code into my script and explain what the line does.

      So for the nice person willing to do that.. I thought the least I could do is buy them lunch through PayPal.

      I have been teaching myself perl through tutorials and books.. it is hard for me to grasp XML.

      The offer still stands

      best wishes

        If "calls and requests" is your problem then, as far as I can see, the XML does not seem to be the problem. The XML is only the container around the data you want to send and receive.

        You will need to give some more information to have any chance of getting help.
