( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
For such simple stuff the module is still useful.

I agree that the module can still be used for very simple cases, like reading simple config files in a known format (Update: although there are better modules available, such as XML::Rules). However, we don't know if the OP's actual XML really is as simple as the example shown in the root node, therefore whether it will work at all (see code below), and you also didn't mention any of the major caveats associated with that module, which is why I posted my comment.

use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dump; use XML::Simple qw/:strict XMLin/; dd XMLin('<root><x><y>Foo</y></x></root>',ForceArray=>[],KeyAttr=>[]); dd XMLin('<root><x y="Foo"></x></root>', ForceArray=>[],KeyAttr=>[]); __END__ { x => { y => "Foo" } } { x => { y => "Foo" } }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
