XML-Tidy (1.2.54HJnFa) *****

This is great for formatting an XML file in a human-readable form. It does one job, and it does it well.

XML-Tidy (1.2.54HJnFa) *****

This module does a great job cleaning up XML and making it look pretty (or tidy, if you will). This comes in super-handy when you generate XML using templates instead of the usual XML::Simple or XML::Writer libraries. Now the consumers of my web services can't tell the difference.

XML-Tidy (1.2.54HJnFa) ****

Excellent little module for re-parsing files.

It does sadly appear to inherit an issue from XML::XPath, but it is documented.

However, XML::Tidy is not comparable to HTML::Tidy, which the name does rather imply: no correction of mismatched 'tags' is attempted. Perhaps XML::Pretty would have been a more informative name.

Use of "&&" instead of the word "and" in the documentation rather irked me, too: forever asking folk to read perldoc perlstyle now seems pointless....
