Question XML parsing through shell scritps

Hi,
Am new to scripting.
Am trying to figure out whether can i use bash scripting to parse an xml file.
Parsing is not just pulling out information according to the pattern but its more of a generic parsing. I should identify the xml hierarchy and pull of information. It's not a basic parsing stuff. So what you tech guys suggest for this. Will the basic bash scripts be suffice or should i go for expat xml parser or perl parsing or whatever??

Pls suggest some tools and throw some light in this.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
