There seem to be a lot of modules on CPAN for handling XML and I am a bit confused what their respective advantages and limitations are.
Best XML Module for ...
Can you recommend which module would be most easy to use and still handle the following things:
* (most important) there should be an easy way to create or access content of tags that again can contain tags like e.g.
<mytag1 attr1="somevalue">this is the content of mytag1<mytag2 nr="1" /> but with <mytag2 attr="abc"> other tags included</mytag1>
It is absolutely essential to keep and manipulate the exact order of the embedded tags.
* should be able to handle encodings
* should be able to automatically escape characters apropriately, e.g. replace ">" by ">" in the content of a tag.
* should be able to parse from a string and create into a string
Documents are not very large, so this can be based on a parser that parses everything into memory at once. Also speed is not all too important.
