Perl module for access to parsed XML trees


With the XML::Smart module, nodes in an XML tree made with XML::LibXML can be accessed equally conveniently with the Perl syntax for hashes and arrays. It also provides convenience features such as searching for nodes by attribute, selection of an attribute value in each of multiple nodes, change the format of returned data, and so forth.

The module also professes to automatically handle binary data (encoding/decoding to/from base64), CDATA sections (used for text content with unbalanced <tags> and so forth), and Unicode. It can be used to create XML files and load XML from the Web (just pasting an URL as a file path). It also provides an easy way to send XML data through sockets, adding the length of the data in the <?xml?> header.
