Perl and xml

I'm wondering how I can use Perl to parse or write a parser for xml. I
have something called expat. I use C,C++, and Java most of the time so I'm
new to perl. I don't really like interpreters but I've heard Perl's a
powerful language. So I'll check it out.

Why re-invent the wheel? There are some perfectly good perl modules
already written to parse XML. Just use them.

Buy a good book (http://books.perl.org) and learn the basics of
Perl (http://learn.perl.org). Any decent book will show you
how to use modules.

Well, unless you love academic excercises you may want to use one of the
existing XML parser.
Did you check CPAN?
