( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I realize this article was written some time ago, but it seems to still apply to XML::Parser My question is: How do you parse a self containing element using this library? A web page I'm trying to parse is structured similar to the following:
<class> <student name="Student1" race="Fast" age="Std" /> <student name="Student2" race="Slow" age="New" /> <student name="Student3" race="Okay" age="Old" /> </class>
Using XML::Parser in the same manner as you did in the article, did not work for me. I'm assuming this is because there is no start/end tag for "student"; it is self containing. I'm thinking that I might have to make my own parser, but if there is already one in this module I can use, I'm all for it :) TY, mike

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.

  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
