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

Even though you say that you “want to stick with Simple,” XML::LibXML (which is a binding for libxml2) will make your task far more “simple,” even trivial.   XPath expressions are the industry-standard way to look for things in an XML document, and they work beautifully in Perl.   Concerns for the exact structure of the document are removed from your Perl source-code and put into ... a string.   Support for anything you might want to do with an XML document is right here.

Furthermore, this library is the most widely-used tool (in any language) for both accessing and creating XML documents.   So, you are probably accessing the file with the same software that was used to create it.

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.
