THIS IS THE XML STRUCTURE I NEED ( for  use with  ADOBE SPRY Framework)

<photos id = "images">
<photo
path = "travel_01.jpg"
width = "263"
height = "350"
thumbpath = "travel_01.jpg"
thumbwidth = "56"
thumbheight = "75">
</photo>
</photos>

I CAN MAKE XML FOR SINGLE  PHOTO NAMES:
print header(-type=>'text/xml',-expires=>'+3d'),
 start_html('XML test'),
    '<image>',
  (map$q->p("<imagename> $_</imagename>"), @image_list),
   '</image>',
  $q->end_html;
 

WHAT I NEED TO KNOW:
How to create the structure used by the SPRY framework using CGI.pm.

Thank you






<photos id = "images">

<photo
path = "travel_01.jpg"
width = "263"
height = "350"
thumbpath = "travel_01.jpg"
thumbwidth = "56"
thumbheight = "75">
</photo>
</photos>

CGI.pm is for HTML not XML
you probably start with using XML::Simple

THIS IS THE SOLUTION THAT I WORKED OUT:

use strict;
use XML::Writer;
use CGI qw/:standard/;

print(header(-type  => 'application/xml'));
 
my $writer = new XML::Writer();

$writer ->startTag ("photos");

foreach my $image(@image_list){

$writer ->startTag ("photo",
                   
path => "$image",
width => "263",
height => "350",
thumbpath => "$image",
thumbwidth => "56",
thumbheight => "75",                  
     );

$writer->endTag("photo");

} # end images

$writer->endTag("photos");
