General Development "This series is a guide to those who need a quick XML-and-Perl solution. In a surprisingly large number of cases, you only need one tool to integrate XML into a Perl application, XML::Simple. Part 1 tells you where to get it, how to use it, and where to go next. Once you whet your appetite for working with XML in Perl, the other two articles in this series will help you sharpen your new skills further."

I've been using XML::Simple for quite awhile. very nice.

One poster mentions YAML which I have also been using. It's not so much lightweight as readability for simple config files. But nothing really beats the Dumper format if everything is going to be perl anwyay.
