( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
If this solves the problem for you, all the power to you. There is nothing wrong to parse XML (or HTML) with regexes. However, if you get problems and come here (or elsewhere) for help, and explain you are parsing XML with regexes, expect to get flak. First, we can't sniff that your files are special and that you exactly know how the XML looks like. Furthermore, if you make the choice for regexes instead of parser, and are hence reinventing, possibly badly, the wheel, you shouldn't burden forums like this with your problems.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
