( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
since I have experience using java's DOM parser, I'll probably stick with xml::dom

Please DON'T!

XML::DOM is an old and barely maintained module. XML::LibXML implements the DOM, plus XPath, which makes it a LOT easier (and safer) to use. It drives me crazy to see the number of people still choosing to use it now, when better alternatives are clearly available.

<rant mode="on">The fact that a module has the name of a standard does not mean a thing. More exactly, it just means that the author was the first one to write a module implementing some of the standard. It does not mean that it is a good module, that you should use it, or that there isn't a better module available. Use your brain! </rant>

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.
