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

XML::Simple will do the job nicely. The following code

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; use XML::Simple; my $xml = XMLin('login.xml'); print Dumper($xml);
produces as output on your example:
$VAR1 = { 'LOGIN' => { 'firstName' => 'Alice', '_AgeAtApplicationYears' => '33', 'phone' => '111-111-1111', 'state' => 'HI', 'zip' => '11111', 'userName' => 'testUser', 'lastName' => 'Firstimer', 'address' => '111 test street' } };

To access e.g. the 'state' attribute, use $xml->{LOGIN}->{state}

Hope this helps, -gjb-

Update: What you call 'embedded tags' are actually termed attributes in XML speak ;)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
