in reply to Perl and XPath.

getNodeValue method will give you the authors name.
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my $a = do {local $/; <DATA>}; use XML::XPath; use XML::XPath::XMLParser; my $xp = XML::XPath->new(xml => $a); my $nodeset = $xp->find('//@author'); # find all authors foreach my $node ($nodeset->get_nodelist) { print $node->getNodeValue."\n\n"; }

    Is it possible to use getNodeValue if you want to get values from multiple attributes at a single level in the tree. For example <id = "2" name = "Jim" Date = "Today" > So in my $node variable I have all of the values. How can I use getNodeValue to access them individually
