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

Without having written any code to verify this, this seems like a most excellent use of Hash::Merge and XML::Simple.

In theory, it should be something as easy as this:

use XML::Simple; use Hash::Merge; my %config1 = %{XMLin ('file1')}; my %config2 = %{XMLin ('file2')}; my %newhash; Hash::Merge::set_behavior ('RIGHT_PRECEDENT'); *newhash = merge (\%config1, \%config2); XMLout (\%newhash, outputfile => "newfile", xmldecl => 1, rootname => +'config');

While this code is theoretical, I use a variant of it for a similiar purpose, and it works flawlessly. I don't know if what you want to do can be done reliably, without using some XML module or another.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
