in reply to Replacing XML Tag name with another

I advice using a proper XML parser! They come in various flavors. XML::Simple jumps to mind. Or maybe even better XML::Twig as it probably doesn't end with replacing tags and you need to do other things with your xml file.

I advice against parsing the file line-by-line and apply some regexp. This type of solution easily breaks. Using a decent parser gives you a more "future proof" solution.
