in reply to xml parsers: do I need one?

I personally prefer XML::Simple for most stuff. However if the time difference is that great, and you know the exact format of the XML, then you could use a regex, I won't tell the Perl Police. The only real advantages I see for using the parser in your situation, is the parser is already done(since you are done the regex already, this doesn't matter), and if the format changes in the future, you'll have to re-engineer the regex.
