( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I think you're trying to print the wrong Text elements. There appears to be several Text element children of the root node, these are not what you want to print.

The below XML is what I tested:

<?xml version="1.0"?> <root> <something>hello</something> <something>world</something> </root>

And parsed it with the script:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use XML::DOM; my $p = XML::DOM::Parser->new(); my $doc = $p->parsefile('test.xml'); my $root = $doc->getFirstChild(); foreach my $node($root->getChildNodes) { if($node->getNodeType == ELEMENT_NODE) { for my $child($node->getChildNodes) { if($child->getNodeType == TEXT_NODE) { print $child->getData, "\n"; } } } }
The actual Text nodes you want are contained within Element children of the root node. I don't think you're traversing deep enough into the DOM tree.

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.
