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

I built an XML parser from a flat file. From here, I woul like the XML file to print out in it's entirety to the browser (to verify it's well formed and eaiser to look at than text -- it can be it's own script because it will be part of a process/wizzard). Essentially, I just need a script that prints an XML file that already exists to a browser and nothing else. Am I making this harder than it has to be?

I'm thinking something like this, but I'm not sure if this is the right road to go down or if there isn't something better. Any help much appreciated!

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI qw(:standard); use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); print header; print header, start_html ("XML File"), open(XMLFILE, "foo.xml"); while (<XMLFILE>){ print; }

  • 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.
