Thanks for the help, at least I can move on from the XML::Parser docs which I spent most of the afternoon reading :( ah well a bit more knowledge never goes amiss.
Which examples should I head for now ? My problem is really that there is so much documentation and I can not fathom which layer my problem stems from, all the way from Expat itself through to SOAP::Lite, they all come with piles of examples and hundred of helpful web pages to be googled. Then I started to fear I may have to work with DTD or xmlns.
I will guess the SOAP examples, if I am wrong a pointer elswhere would be most welcome.
Thanks and Cheers,
