Probably a script fetching external xml-files, where you get 0-n <Entry>-tags in each file... ;)

    I agree with the statement about the limitations of XML::Simple. I like it a lot as it can solve simple problems with three lines of code, and I find it acceptable to use the one or other option as well (say ForceArray), but once you reach that point, a more powerful module is usually required.

      Hi hdb,

      I agree. I'm using it, too. That's the reason I know some of the traps (I jumped into all of them). I'm pretty sure that the problem described in the older thread HASH error has the same origin. Sadly I've never heard whether my proposed solution helped.

      But I'm also sure that I wouldn't use this module in a bigger context anymore.

      Best regards
