|Perl: the Markov chain saw|
I take back the flippant "Whatever" response. You asked a valid question and I posted a knee jerk response. Sorry about that.
My intention in my original question was that when you look at many of the XML parsing modules, they create hashes of XXXX where the depth tend to become rather unwieldly. XML::Simple is good for simple XML but not not so much for complex XML. On the flip side, libXML is a bit much for simple XML.
The thing that started all this? Flickr::API using the abandoned XML::Parser::Lite::Tree module. Granted Flickr's REST interface is simple ... it just happened to be the last straw.
Let me formally apologize to anyone that took offense and especially to you.
In reply to Re^8: Why oh why is working with XML so bloomin' difficult in Perl?
