I am looking forward to your answer to the OP's question based on XML::Rules. In the meantime, I will see whether I can get it installed, a simple cpan install XML::Rules failed on my machine.

    I am looking forward to your answer to the OP's question based on XML::Rules.

    I've posted about XML::Rules as a replacement for XML::Simple before: Re: What is correct way to reference?, Re^2: hashref with(out) arrays. The following at least generates a consistent Perl data structure, and can be adapted as needed.

    use warnings; use strict; use XML::Rules; use Data::Dump; my $parser = XML::Rules->new( stripspaces => 3|4, rules => [ _default => 'raw' ], ); dd $parser->parse(<<'ENDXML'); <xmltop> <xmlbody> <tag1>jdjdjdjd</tag1> <tag2>dkdkkd</tag2> </xmlbody> </xmltop> ENDXML __END__ [ "xmltop", { _content => [ [ "xmlbody", { _content => [ ["tag1", { _content => "jdjdjdjd" }], ["tag2", { _content => "dkdkkd" }], ], }, ], ], }, ]

    Update: One possible caveat here is that if an XML element has an attribute _content, then its value will be prepended to the node's text content.

      That is a useful script to keep in the library. Many thanks!

    You want cpan XML::Rules or cpan -i XML::Rules. While harmless, cpan install XML::Rules installs both install and XML::Rules.
