You could also use XML::Rules instead of XML::Simple as it gives you more detailed control over what data structure gets generated.

Something like:

use XML::Rules; # at least 0.22 (for the stripspaces) # see my $parser = XML::Rules->new( rules => [ Text => 'content', Entry => 'as array', Report => 'pass', Other => sub {return delete($_[1]->{name}) => $_[1]}, ], stripspaces => 3, ); my $data = $parser->parse(\*DATA); use Data::Dumper; print Dumper($data); __DATA__ <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?> <Report address="Address" name="IM Report" productID="INTRFC-MGR01"> <Entry detail="4" name="e_im_dev_io_entry"> <Text>Device Handle: 2</Text> </Entry> <Entry detail="4" name="e_im_dev_io_entry"> <Text>Device Handle: 5</Text> </Entry> <Other detail="4" name="first"> <Text>Device Handle: 5</Text> </Other> <Other detail="4" name="second"> <Text>Device Handle: 5</Text> </Other> </Report>

It doesn't try to guess as XML::Simple does so it's more work though. (In not yet released 0.23 the rule for the Other tag will be just Other => 'by name',.)

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.
