( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
{My apologies for not having been logged in earlier when I suggested XSLT}

As you said: "source XML is large" and contains "non-essential information". His example case was "large" (3.3MB) and searching solely for tags of type <message>. That is a very simple XSLT to output as HTML (fragmentary example, please don't carp about the syntax):

<ul> <xsl:for-each select="message"> <li><xsl:value-of select="current()" /></li> </xsl:for-each> </ul>
XSLT can convert XML directly into XML, HTML, or even perl:
@messages = ( <xsl:for-each select="message"> "<xsl:value-of select="current()" />", </xsl:for-each> );

I wouldn't want to comment further without a better understanding of the actual "processing" to be done, but the simple example presented in the question is practically a textbook case for XSLT.

Whatever. Use the tools you like.

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.
