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

Although my go-to XML module is XML::LibXML, XML::Twig is useful for filtering XML files. The following produces your expected output for the given input:

use warnings; use strict; use XML::Twig; use XML::XPath; # for findnodes my $filename = 'foo.xml'; XML::Twig->new( twig_print_outside_roots => 1, keep_spaces => 1, twig_roots => { '/TestCode/TestCategory/Test' => sub { my ($t, $elt) = @_; if ( $elt->{att}{name} =~ /^CheckType_/ ) { my @values = $elt->findnodes('./context/value'); # could theoretically also use XPath for the following if ( grep { $_->text =~ /XYZ/ } @values ) { $t->flush } else { $t->purge } } else { $t->purge } }, }, )->parsefile($filename);

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
