With Java, you have several orders of magnitude more coders already, and given that Java is to programming languages as XML is to data representations, it's only natural that Java would have the good XML tools first.

ASP is a major dynamic page generation language out there, and given that XML is a good choice for representing data in back-ends, it's only natural that ASP have access to similar tools.

To be honest, I didn't realize Perl was "looked down" upon for its XML implementations. As far as I know, they're as complete and easy-to-use (perhaps easier, but that's just Perl) as any other implementation. See XML::Simple and XML::Parser. Perl isn't always the best language for the task, so perhaps some of these other tasks you're thinking about just seemed better in another language? *shrug*

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.
