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

I don't know anything about this particular module, but the error says very clearly that $answers->{answer} is not an arrayref. This could be because the parser only returns an array of elements when there is more than one element (which would make sense in some cases). Sometimes functions can be forced into returning arrays by using them in list context. Try using Data::Dumper to see exactly what $answers->{answer} is. Read the docs for XML::Simple, they will probably tell you (unless they really suck) what kind of data structure XMLin returns.


$,=qq.\n.;print q.\/\/____\/.,q./\ \ / / \\.,q.    /_/__.,q..

Title:
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.
