perl xml parsing expert hang around here?
« on: September 02, 2015, 02:41:49 PM »
want to modify some sequencer xml files that don't lend themselves easily to the open it in excel and cut and paste it.

I can fumble with perl, but would not mind someone I can ask a few questions off and get off on the right foot right at the get go.

referencing hashes and a few module calls fry my brain since I do it so rarely.

I personally would recommend python... Not to start any holly wars or anything :)

What are you looking to do?

I prefer Perl over Python, but having had to deal with some XML in Perl in the past, I was going to recommend looking at using 'sed'. :)

Same question applies though, let us know what you are trying to do and maybe we can help.

If you are just trying to look at the xml and maybe modify it you should be using notepad++ free.
