Here's another easy method:
$_ = <<EOF; <xml> <email></email><name>Toto</name> <email></email><name>Tata</name> <email></email><name>Tutu</name> </xml> EOF my @email = /<email>(.*?)<\/email>/g; my @name = /<name>(.*?)<\/name>/g;
(Note that it leaves XML entities undecoded, as noted in the reply.)

    That doesn't decode entities (its broken).
