    my @images; for my $node ($doc->findnodes('/rsp/sizes/size')) { my $source = $node->getAttribute('source'); my $url = $node->getAttribute('url'); push @images, [ $source, $url ]; }
      when i tried to use the same xpath expression ...
      use XML::LibXML; my $parser = XML::LibXML->new(); my $doc = $parser->parse_file('yahoo.xml'); my @images; for my $node ($doc->findnodes('/ysearchresponse/resultset_web/result/u +rl')) { my $source = $node->getValue; push @images, $source; print $source; }

      I am getting empty array's .....

        See doc for findnodes, you need to bind a prefix to the namespace (xmlns), so
        my $xpc = XML::LibXML::XPathContext->new; $xpc->registerNs( 'x', '' ); $xpc->findnodes( '/x:ysearchresponse/x:resultset_web/x:result/x:url', +$doc ) $xpc->findnodes( '*/*/x:result/x:url', $doc )
