Thanks for your input. It's working partially. In case, if I want to add multiple test nodes based on user choice how can I do that. In this example, I can extract only one node based on XPath.

Also, I want to include suite node in the new.xml file.

    I do think it's time for you to start reading the XML::LibXML docs. See if you can at least get the multiple test nodes captured/found, it's quite a small adjustment. Post what you come up with and if you can't work it all out, I or someone will help you finish.

    Oh, ok! You wore me out and I wrote it yesterday and there's no reason for it to die of bitrot in some corner of my disk. I do hope you will try to pick up a little of it and not just get others to write it for you.

    my $doc = XML::LibXML->new->load_xml( string => $before ); my @tests = $doc->findnodes('/suite/test[@name="Import Test Suite"]'); my $suite = $doc->getDocumentElement; $suite->removeChildNodes; $suite->addChild($_) for @tests; print $doc->serialize(1); # or $doc->toFile("new.xml")

      Superb.. :)

      Let me make a try and i'll get back to you :)
