Or you could force it into a single element by attaching tags to both ends:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use XML::Parser; my %hash; my $depth = 0; my @tags; sub start { my ($expat, $element) = @_; push(@tags, $element); $hash{$tags[-1]} = ''; } sub end { pop(@tags); if (@tags == 1) { delete $hash{posts}; delete $hash{post}; # now you have hash. print "Job: $hash{jobnumber}\n"; print "City: $hash{location}\n"; %hash = (); } } sub char { my ($expat, $string) = @_; $hash{$tags[-1]} .= $string; } my $text = <<'EOF'; <post> <jobnumber>1234</jobnumber> <location> somecity NJ </location> </post> <post> <jobnumber>87922</jobnumber> <location> Othercity, AK </location> </post> EOF my $p1 = new XML::Parser(Handlers => { Start => \&start, End => \&end, Char => \&char }); $p1->parse("<posts>$text</posts>");

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.
