( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The point of XML::Simple is to have a way to specify a Perl data structure with XML, and to serialize that data structure into some valid XML representation. It's not meant for very specific structure control in either direction, and if you find yourself trying to tweak things to get it to be precisely as you wish, you've probably gone beyond its abilities.

If you want to manage precise XML transformations, look in to XML::LibXML or the higher-level xsh scripting language. I did a column on that a while back.

Title:
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.
