XML to flat file in Unix


How can I take a file in XML format and convert it to a comma separated format? Is there any scripts or programs that can
do this for Unix? I tried surfing the net for such an application, but everything seems to be for Windows OS. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

If your on a unix platform, I assume you have perl?
type some search strings into the form


there might be a module/package to do what you want.
