in thread XML::Simple => XMLout()

The first line of the XML data was <opt> and the last line of the XML data was </opt>.

That looks like a valid matching pair of opening and closing tags to me. Not sure I follow why you're suggesting that the OP to change <opt> to <opt/>, which in my opinion would leave an orphaned </opt> tag at the end.

Am I missing something?

    You're not missing something. I have to agree with you. To get it to work with XMLin though, that's what I had to do. I originally put the xml under __DATA__: I had to use <opt/> for that; however, I just noticed that when I call the xml as a file, then <opt> works as it should. Sorry for the confusion.
