in reply to Re^2: Manipulate xml with libxml
in thread Manipulate xml with libxml

I confess LibXML doesn't create pretty XML, in fact I normally include variables to strip out the unneccesary whitespace because I send it through XSLT. You can write some kind recursive loop to fix it all or if you are not to worried about speed, send your string to XML::Twig. It has some great pretty_print functionality. I only make the comment about speed because in this you will be effectively parsing your XML twice.

    As much as it pains me to say this ;--( ... if libxml2 is installed, it might be just as simple to use xmllint --format. And XML::Twig comes with a standalone tool: xml_pp.
