Seconded.  Here's the example I use to teach namespaces to perl programmers;
they get it instantly

  use XML::Parser;

  $xml = "<z xmlns='http://one.org'
             xmlns:two='http://two.org'><y1 /><two:y2 /></z>";
  $p = new XML::Parser(Namespaces => 1,
                       Handlers => { Start => \&STag });

  sub STag {
    my ($expat, $type) = @_;
    my $ns = $expat->namespace($type);
    print "Element type $type is from namespace $ns\n";
Element type z is from namespace http://one.org
Element type y1 is from namespace http://one.org
Element type y2 is from namespace http://two.org
