Practical Perl Tools: Taking the XPath Less Traveled
DAVID N. BLANK-EDELMAN
In my last column I made a statement about liking XPath so much that I just might be tempted to make it the subject of the next column. I’ve decided to make good on that threat and talk a bit about XPath and how its power can be harnessed from Perl. One strange thing about this choice is it will force the column to include more details about another language that isn’t Perl. Hopefully, you, faithful reader, are willing to hang with that. The plus is the language in question is XPath, something you’ll be able to use with Perl or virtually any other language that is currently wetting your whistle.
