can you look at my code and tell me why the Xpath is not working in my code? Why I get the error message? Thanks for your help.

    You are making things up that do not at all match any kind of documentation. That's not how programming works.

    The following code works for me, and all I needed to do was to read the documentation of XML::LibXML.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; use XML::LibXML; my $html_link = "http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/topstories"; my $dom = XML::LibXML->load_xml(location => $html_link); my $xp = XML::LibXML::XPathContext->new($dom); my @nodes = $xp->findnodes("/rss/channel/item"); print $_->toString for @nodes;

    As you haven't told us why you use XML::RSS::LibXML, I have removed it from the code.

      I was using RSS because I already have file loaded through it for parsing $item->{link} from it.
