That depends on how you want the XML formatted.  

If $string contains the string, one way might be:
my $xml = "<xml>$string</xml>";

Another might be:
my $xml = "<xml string=\"$string\"></xml>";

I prefer to use LibXML (http://search.cpan.org/~pajas/XML-LibXML/)

use XML::LibXML;
my $parser = XML::LibXML->new();
  
my $doc = $parser->parse_string($some_xml_string);
# here we get the formatted string
my $formatted_xml = $doc->toString(1);
