in reply to Replacing XML Tag name with another

If you replace 'H1' by 'Heading 1', the resulting data will no longer be well-formed XML, tag names cannot include spaces, so are you sure you want to do this?

Looking at your data, I am also not sure if the names are right. It looks to me like you have nested sections, unless you have quite complex headings, that include a title, text and sub-headings with more text. So maybe something like section1 and section2 would be more appropriate.

So with a proper XML parser (I am partial to XML::Twig), which makes the solution easier to write and more robust:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use XML::Twig; XML::Twig->new( twig_handlers => { H1 => sub { $_->set_tag( 'section1' +); }, H2 => sub { $_->set_tag( 'section2' +); }, }, pretty_print => 'indented', ) ->parsefile( $ARGV[0]) ->print;
