spmlingam has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks,
I have two Perl processes, which will communicate the some details through custom APIs. I would like to replace this
custom APIs with generic standard APIs, like xml. the processes should be able to handle more then 1000 API
construction and parsing. which is the best standard API method?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Why do you want to change a working API? Why do you want to add a huge overhead of creating, validating and parsing XML?


    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
