( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am using XML::Simple to parse a pretty non-complex xml file that deals with nodes on a network.

<network> <node name="edge1"> <community>something</community> <loopback>172.16.254.10</loopback> </node> <node name="edge2"> <community>anotherthing</community> <loopback>10.6.21.10</loopback> <loopback>10.12.71.14</loopback> </node> </network>

Now, I see how to grab the value of a field that has multiple choices. Such as edge2's loopbacks.

my $i =XMLin("xmlfile"); print "$i->{node}->{edge2}->{loopback}->[1]\n";
I have a decent idea of how to loop over all of the loopbacks for a given node, however how do I loop over all of the given nodes? Trying something like:

print "$i->{node}->[1]\n";
gives me an error saying that there is no reference to a hash. I can understand this error, but I'm not sure how to get past it to print out a list of all the known "nodes" in my xml file. My ultimate goal is to pass over the list of nodes and act upon then using the information held nested beneath them in the same xml file.

thanks -c

  • 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).
