That depends on the system you're running on :) No seriously, you're right
XML-Parsing isn't just another trivial Task, But with embedding perl into
the code it should be possible to use the Modules that Perl provides, here
is amongst other things, a big library of XML Parsers and Writers.

but having Worldfiles (that is .wld|.obj|.mob|.zon) in XML would be
somewhat cool methinks, playerfiles I'd rather store in a SQLdb of sorts
(be that oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL or other).  PlayerObjectfiles on the
other hand I'm still in doubt of.
