( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi Monks, Thanks for your help. I was closer than i thought…. however, i am struggling to keep the <infoTable> parameter which is included on the same line as <infomationTable…. which i am essentially deleting. Suggestions on how to retain the <infoTable> text would be appreciated. Also, the <?xml line is a bear to get rid of? thanks

#!/usr/local/bin/perl # $file = 'test.xml'; # Name the file open(INFO, $file); # Open the file @lines = <INFO>; # Read it into an array close(INFO); # Close the file open STDOUT, ">$file" or die "cannot open file $!\n" ; # Open t +he file for (@lines) { s#<informationTable.*##; } print @lines; close(STDOUT);
#sample xml file <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <informationTable xmlns=" +nformationtable" xmlns:xsi=" +"> <infoTable> </infoTable> </informationTable> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
