Does it? Not that I'm against these modules but at least for the XML
side, not supporting namespaces is a pretty huge limitation AFAICT.
I'm nowhere near as involved in Perl XML as I used to be, but I still
use the stuff regularly and for all the advantages XML::TreeBuilder
might have, I simply couldn't use it because of that. One still finds
non-namespaced XML in config files and some internal stuff, but it's
getting rather rare overall.
I don't have APP2 but looking at the ToC that's online it looks like
you don't mention XML::LibXML (which I guess is the most successful
option these days), XML::LibXML::XPathContext, XML::Twig, etc. If you
want to go XML there are a few options. If not covered I'd definitely
go for one of those, probably the first in that list.
