Be gentle this is my first foray into XML::Simple ---
I'm getting the following error message and can't understand why I'm getting it: Invalid name in entity [Ln: 290, Col: 689]
I'm also unable to use a string as the argument to XMLin(). When I do the script just burns CPU and never returns.
The XML file I'm trying to parse loads just fine into Firefox http://<url>/test.xml. The xml is simple but there's a lot of it.
How do I figure out if there's really bad data or make XMLin() not blow up when it doesn't like something? I'd really like to pass the string - how do I do that? Where am I going wrong?
The code is fairly simple as well-
