in thread extract tag content from VLC webserver via XML::Rules

If really all you want is that one item and it is on one line of your XML file, use a regex: /^\s*<info name="now_playing">(.*?)<\/info>$/

If you're going to use a regex don't bother with anchors or or backslashes :)

my( $fo ) = m{ \Q<info name="now_playing">\E (.*?) \Q</info>\E }sx;
