Two things:
  1. If you know you want to output xml, then print header('text/xml'); is a lot simpler.
  2. Always check to see if your 'open' succeeded. Your error message means that your script didn't open the file.
#!/usr/local/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI qw(:standard); use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); print header('text/xml'); my $file = "/some/file.xml"; open(XMLFILE, $file) or die "Failed to open $file, $!"; while (<XMLFILE>){ print; }

    Thanks Virtualse

    The above code seems to work but I get a bad headder error. It "works" mening in prints by hand, just not to the browser. What might cause that?

    Thanks for the correction. I thought I remembered that it was something simple, but I guess I just skipped over that in the docs when I looked.
