( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Here are two options:

  1. send the xml to the browser, and let the browser render it:
    use CGI qw(:cgi); # don't need HTML, only cgi stuff
    print header(-type => 'application/xml');  # make browser expect xml
    open XML, '<', 'foo.xml' or die $!;
    print while <XML>;
  2. print an HTML rendering of your xml file:
    use CGI qw(:standard);
    sub escape_xml ($) {
      my $text = shift;
      $text =~ s/</&lt;/g;
      $text =~ s/ < >/&gt;/g;
      return $text;
    print header, start_html('XML File');
    open XML, '<', 'foo.xml' or die $!;
    print "<pre>\n";
    print escape_xml($_) while <XML>;
    print "\n</pre>";
updated to fix the typo spotted by benizi (Thank you!)

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.
