in reply to XML::Simple : element vs. attribute in XMLout

It seems that if the structure would have been obtained using XMLin with

forcearray => [ qw(arr mod subarr) ]
then the hash would be what XMLOut needs. Wouldn't that fit ?

    This is likely correct. I haven't checked this yet, because I was hoping for a solution which would work with the *present* internal representation, because it would spare me from modifying existing code which already assumes the hash to be constructed in the way it is right now.

      You can always transform the tree programmatically before XMLout.

      for my $elem (@{ $tree->{arr}{elem} }) { $elem->{mod}{content} = delete($elem->{mod}); }

      For what it's worth, keep in mind your existing code will break if a mod element acquires an attribute. (Don't you love the fragility of XML::Simple?)
