Validating XML against a schema

tomazos has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Does anyone know of an XML-parsing module that validates against an XML Schema (XML) file?

I'm using Perl to make a resource compiler for an consumer electronic device. As part of it, certain elements are specified as XML document files. Each type of file has an accompanying XML Schema file (also in XML).

Before I run XML::Parser over them, I want to check that they are valid against their XML Schema. (or does it do that already?)

I had a look at XML::Schema, but if I understand it correctly, I would have to manually go through each Schema and build them up at run-time calling methods. It looks like it is unable to parse an XML Schema in its normal XML form.

Anyone know of a better solution?

Thanks in advance.

Update: I just spotted XML::Validator::Schema

I'm guessing that will have something to do with it. :) Sorry guys.
