XML::Simple - how to select keys while parsing?
Apparently, XML::Simple is now deprecated in favour of XML::LibXML; For what you're trying to do, it looks like the appropriate method is getElementsByTagName, found in XML::LibXML::Document.

It apparently makes about as much sense as deprecating plastic child knife for a chain saw. You can cut bread with it, somehow, but experience with the knife will be of no use to you.
Enoch was right!
