( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

XML::Simple (and not LWP::Simple) is simple to use. As for installing it, I don't see what the problem is with typing the usual make/make test/su/make install mantra.

I am afraid that if you want to process XML in Perl you will have to install XML::Parser, including the expat library. Unix users usually have gcc around and XML::Parser comes pre-installed with the Activestates port on windows. So it really shouldn't be a problem.

The only real problem that you might come accross is actually that you might have too many versions of expat installed, as some of the Apache tools come with their own, dynamically linked and slightly incompatible version of the library. See the XML::Parser review for more details. By the way a team including Clark Cooper, the maintainer for XML::Parser, Apache people and even (gasp!) Python developers (Python XML tools are also based on expat) is working on the problem.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
