( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The solution is actually just posted above - use ForceArray => 1 when you do XMLin(); The mechanism is as my title suggested: as long as you force a reference out of the value, that value will be treated as element instead of attribute when XMLout writes it out.

Here's the set of options that I found the best (for my usage, and probably for general usage) for XML::Simple:

my $obj = XMLin($filename, ForceArray => 1, ForceContent => 1, KeepRoo +t => 1, ContentKey => '_c', KeyAttr => []); open(OUT, ">$filename-1"); print OUT XMLout($obj, KeepRoot => 1, ContentKey => '_c', KeyAttr => [ +]);
Hope it helps.

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.
