XML and Perl

Speaking about Perl in my Previous post, I forgot to mention that I will need to start doing some XML processing, before I start going off and investigating the wrong XML Parsers does anyone know of a good lightweight Perl XML Parser.

Some options that I need are:

  1. It has to be light weight
  2. Potentially support XPath
  3. Has to be a reader (itereates accross nodes) I think this means SAX
  4. Has to also support DOM.
  5. Allows Creation of XML documents, via DOM style methods or some other method which I don't know about.

If you have any suggestions, I really would appreciate hearing them.
