in reply to XML::LibXML- Escape Empty Tags

What all have you tried? I would start with
$node->textContent;
or
$tree->findnodes("//imageURL_med/text()");

    I don't think the second will work, because I don't think there's a text node to match.

    I have no idea as to where i need to implement this line, can you just develop or explain a bit more this path, i would try it if at least i knew where to try :) Sorry i am completly lost.
      So I guess you didn't try anything?
      It seemed from the code you posted that you were somewhat familiar with XML::LibXML.
      Anyway, if you want to access text try (in your loop):
      $child->textContent;
      Or if you want to get the text node try (anywhere after you parse the file):
      $tree->findnodes("//imageURL_med/text()");
        I ve just discovered the module yesterday and tried to actually output something :D, after reading quite few things i tried the hasChild function to check if there is data in those tag but couldn't make it work,. So i ve tried but my knowledge and skills are very limited. Thanks for the tip though
