in reply to How do you parse XML?

Technically, most of the time i use Maplat::Helpers::ConfigLoader, which in turn uses XML::Simple. But reading/parsing (most) XML files by looking at the screen works just as well.

For complicated cases cat|grep|less and/or vim are also good options to quickly find the one relevant option in huge directories full of XML stuff :-)
