Simplified XML interface using Perl -- conversion of table-style data representation between hash and XML
A good method for building exact XML interface is use XML API. However, it is easier to use Perl's pattern macth function to create a simpler XML (like) interface. In an exact XML interface, a text line may contain any number of tags, and a content enclosed by a beginning and ending tags. However, if we can add a restriction to this syntax, we can handle XML documents in an easier method. Such a simplified XML processing might not be encouraged, but it is convenient when building a simple prototype.
