Any good book on Perl describes the language in detail. The
syntax used above is from a real module. A popular book 
describing Perl is ISBN: 1-56592-149-6, Programming Perl by Wall,
Christiansen and Schwartz. 

Again, I am not a proponent of Perl. That was just to show that
perl does XML transformation staff - with just appropriate library
modules - just as well as XSLT, but may be with less sharpness
than XSLT 1.0 and without reflection (stylesheets can be transformed
with XSLT 1.0, perl programs cannot); and it does the rest 
better than XSLT 2.0.
