Title: Inside XML
Author: Steven Holzner
Publisher: New Riders
201 West 103rd Street
Indianapolis, IN 46290

This book has over 1,000 pages of text and includes useful information about:

  • XML document basics
  • DTDs
  • XML Schemas
  • Java and XML
  • Javascript and XML
  • VML (Vector Markup Language)
  • WML (Wireless Markup Language)

    But, buried inside is also relevant information about Perl and XML. The author states "Perl has been getting into XML in a big way and one could easily write a book on the subject". Until one is published, this XML book packs practical information and working code into only 11 of its pages.

    This short section gives a brief description of the over 80 CPAN (Comprehensive Perl Archive Network) Perl modules available that deal with XML. The author then describes how to write two XML applications -- one that processes XML input and another that creates XML output.

    The first program uses the XML Parser module to process and print an XML document. While it looks quite simple, this program provides the necessary code for parsing any XML document.

    The second program is a more complex Web application which provides all the necessary code to search for data in a small database and return the result information in an XML document.

    While the Perl section of this book is quite short, the author provides extremely useful, functional prototype programs to use to help build your own custom applications. If you need to start writing Perl applications that utilize XML, this is a great book to get started with.
