XML::Simple

As I build an aggregator for managing blogs4God, I came across this niftly CPAN Contribution … XML::Simple.

XML::Simple is a Perl module that makes it really easy to read and write XML files. It is faster than XML::RSS and I think will help me quickly flip flop between the wide-variety of XML, RSS and/or RDF file formats I’m having to contend with.

We’ll see. That said, this page also gives some useful hints on how to install CPAN libraries on your own machine … provided you have the access and tools to do so.

  1. XML::Simple was the first Perl XML module i felt like i really understood! These days i use XML::Twig: you might want to take it look, it tries hard to make the simple things easy (and … you know the rest).
