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

Hey, time for a shameless plug!

You can have a look at What's wrong with Perl and XML? for my opinion on the subject. (you may also want to check the Forum for various, often opposite, views)

To sum it up I would just say that XML and Java are a much better cultural fit than Perl and XML. Whitout even discussing the technical merits of both languages for XML processing, the kind of environment where XML is used is often much more Java-oriented than Perl-oriented.

Which does not mean that Perl cannot be used to process XML, PerlMonks uses XML quite a lot (User nodes info xml generator, Newest Nodes XML Generator., the ChatterBox client...

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.
