Once a month or so I still encounter people using sed to process XML.

Perl - less often. But that might be because Perl programmers are less
likely to ask questions - there's vastly more examples and
documentation.  I see questions around using XML (or XSLT) with Python
more often.

Maybe the DPH systems administrator type is more likely to be using
node.js and JSON these days.
