you need Xpath modules to get the exact value of the Node ....try XML::Xpath
i tried to use XML::LibXML but ran into some problems ..
please post the code Cleanly .....
i just pasted the xml into a hello.xml ....
my $parser = XML::LibXML->new();
my $doc = $parser->parse_file('hello.xml');
foreach my $book ($doc->findnodes('/result/suites/suite/cases/case')
my($title) = $book->findnodes('./className');
print $title->to_literal, "\n"
i think this is what you are looking for ...
