Thanks for the info. I'll give XML::Sablotron and XML:Path a try.
In my case XSL/XPath is just the ticket (since my input data is already in
XML format and it's my intended output format as well.)
I intend to use Perl for FTP opload, and a bit of logic, while XSL will do
the bulk of the data manipulation.
I'll post a write up when it's done.
I'd love to attend your talk. Unfortunatly, my car can't make the drive
Any chance of a webcast? ;-)
