Problems? Is your data what you think it is?

If you use Data::Dumper along with XML::Simple (the dynamic duo?) you can see that, using forcearray => 1 with XML::Simple, your XML becomes this:

$VAR1 = { 'node' => { 'edge2' => { 'community' => [ 'anotherthing' ], 'loopback' => [ '', '' ] }, 'edge1' => { 'community' => [ 'something' ], 'loopback' => [ '' ] } } };

So, I believe you want something like this:

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict ; use warnings ; use XML::Simple ; #use Data::Dumper ; my $xml = <<'EOD' ; <network> <node name="edge1"> <community>something</community> <loopback></loopback> </node> <node name="edge2"> <community>anotherthing</community> <loopback></loopback> <loopback></loopback> </node> </network> EOD my $data = XMLin( $xml, forcearray => 1 ) ; #print Dumper( $data ) ; foreach my $key ( keys %{$data->{'node'}} ) { foreach my $loopback ( @{$data->{'node'}{$key}{'loopback'}} ) { print "key = $key; loopback = $loopback\n" ; } }


key = edge2; loopback = key = edge2; loopback = key = edge1; loopback =

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
