Thanks for the info, Joost. I know that it must have been already discussed here, somewhere in the monastery, I just couldn't find it.

However, after looking at the fixes posted at PerlMonks modules 2.0, I notice none of the them touch the real problem: not doing XML parsing in a sane way. For example, they all will simply fail if there are spaces between an attribute and its value. Probably after some refinement, one can eventually ends up with a regex that will really work. But I think it's much simpler to use a good XML module to do that job.

    I know, I started to replace some of the mathing with XML::Simple but I simply got bored with it, especially because I think it is time for a complete rewrite for these modules.
