srivats has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear All,
I am kind of stuck with handling XML in perl with Xerces.   I have got the parser installed.   I want to how do you manipulate a DOM tree in the memory and use it for processing.   Specifically can some one give Examples for
removeChild appendChild replaceChild
in the existing DOM, which apparently changes the DOM structure in memory.

    The documentation for XML::Xerces is ... lacking. However, all is not lost. A quick search on CPAN finds XML::Xerces::BagOfTricks, which does have good documentation. I'd start there.

    Another question is why you have to use XML::Xerces when XML::Parser is free ... ?

    Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose

    I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
