XML-XPath (1.13) *****

Xpath is meant to be simple, this should be simple?, well is so simple to even make simple things simple, straigthforward (foreach over find -> get_nodelist) to access a nodeset, for example, that is what you usually need to reach the "Heaven of XML" without purgatory DOM pains.

XML-XPath (1.13) *

This review applies to XML::XPath 1.13, released in January 2003.

The module has not been maintained in a long time (close to 5
years) and there are a number of open bug reports (some with patches
that have not been applied in 2 years).

XML::LibXML is most likely a better choice, if you can install libxml2.
It's basic interface is very, very similar to XML::XPath, but the module is faster, much more powerful and actively maintained.

XML-XPath (1.13) ***

This module has great utility though, sadly, the documentation is sorely lacking. That would be one great thing to do with the distribution as it is a very straightforward and useful module for XML parsing, it just drops the ball with documentation by referring one to the tests for all examples.

Very good! Except performance is very slow. Apparently the actual xml is stored as a string, and parsed every time you search for something.
