Need help converting txt to XML

I have a table as following

Archive idLineAuthorTime Text
1fjj34 375jk5l 03:20 this is an evidence regarding ...
1fjj34 4gjhhtrd03:21 we have seen those documents before
1fjj34 10645jmdvvb04:00 Will you consider such an offer?
3a530367rdnsa01:17 Will you consider such an offer?

but my separators are "|" so my plain text files looks like

Archive id|Lie|Author|Time|Text
1fjj34|3|75jk5l|03:20|this is an evidence regarding xxx
1fjj34|4|gjhhtrd|03:21|we have seen those documents before
1fjj34|10|645jmdvvb|04:00|Will you consider such an offer?
3a530|3|67rdnsa|01:17|Will you consider such an offer?
I have absolute no ideal when where to start in relation to convert it to XML and my data is nested so bit confused. I would be grateful if you can help me.Smilie

the output structure is
< archives>
	< archive id="1fjj34">
		<file line="3">
			<text> this is an evidence regarding xxx </text>
		<file line="4">
			<text> we have seen those documents before </text>
		<file line="10">
			<text> Will you consider such an offer? </text>
	< archive id="3a530">
		<file line="3">
			<text> Will you consider such an offer? </text>
	</ archive>
< archives>

note: the data has originally been in XML, I have received the help from this forum to convert in to txt which you can see in here. I have done all the calculation and filtering I needed and wished to convert it back to XML

Thank you in advance for your help

XML::LibXML::NodeList::Iterator(3pm)			User Contributed Perl Documentation		      XML::LibXML::NodeList::Iterator(3pm)

XML::LibXML::NodeList::Iterator - Iteration Class for XML::LibXML XPath results SYNOPSIS
use XML::LibXML; use XML::LibXML::NodeList::Iterator; my $doc = XML::LibXML->new->parse_string( $somedata ); my $nodelist = $doc->findnodes( $somexpathquery ); my $iter= XML::LibXML::NodeList::Iterator->new( $nodelist ); # more control on the flow while ( $iter->nextNode ) { # do something } # operate on the entire tree $iter->iterate( &operate ); DESCRIPTION
XML::LibXML::NodeList::Iterator is very similar to XML::LibXML::Iterator, but it does not iterate on the tree structure but on a XML::LibXML::NodeList object. Because XML::LibXML::NodeList is basicly an array the functionality of XML::LibXML::NodeList::Iterator is more restircted to stepwise foreward and backward than XML::LibXML::Iterator is. SEE ALSO
