Is there a protoype that can read this XML format?

Before I go down the route of writing a prototype (or attempting to), I was wondering if there was a prototype that I could use to read an IP list in this XML format.  I would be interested in pulling out the address and country:

Hi @MichaelPDean,

 

provided that you have a Pingdom Account, you could use its RESTFul API to get the list of probes in JSON format.

 

https://www.pingdom.com/resources/api/2.1#MethodGet+Probe+Server+List

 

That JSON document could be consumed directly by MineMeld using the SimpleJSON class.

Thank you, I will take a look at that (we do have a Pingdom account)
