The XML::Simple module provides a simple API layer on top of an underlying
XML parsing module to maintain XML files (especially configuration
files).  Two functions are exported: XMLin() and XMLout().
The simplest approach is to call these two functions directly, but an
optional object oriented interface allows them to be called as
methods of an XML::Simple object.  The object interface can also be
used at either end of a SAX pipeline.
Note from upstream: The use of this module in new code is strongly
discouraged. Other modules are available which provide more straightforward
and consistent interfaces. In particular, XML::LibXML is highly recommended.
XML::Twig is another excellent alternative.These modules are packaged as
libxml-libxml-perl and libxml-twig-perl in Debian.
