That just about concludes this little tour of parsing XML data with Perl. I've tried to keep it as simple as possible, and there are numerous aspects of XML I haven't covered here. If you're interested in learning more about XML and XSL, you should visit the following links:

The XML specification, at http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/REC-xml-20001006

The XSLT specification, at http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt.html

The SAX project, at http://www.saxproject.org/

The W3C's DOM specification, at http://www.w3.org/DOM/

A number of developers have built and released Perl packages to handle XML data - if you're ever on a tight deadline, using these packages might save you some development time. Take a look at the following links for more information:

CPAN, at http://www.cpan.org/

And that's just about all for the moment. I hope you found this interesting, and that it helped to make the road ahead a little clearer. Till next time, stay healthy!

Note: All examples in this article have been tested on Linux/i586 with Perl 5.005. Examples are illustrative only, and are not meant for a production environment. YMMV!
