NAME
Test::XML::Simple - easy testing for XML SYNOPSIS
use Test::XML::Simple tests=>5; xml_valid $xml, "Is valid XML"; xml_node $xml, "/xpath/expression", "specified xpath node is present"; xml_is, $xml, '/xpath/expr', "expected value", "specified text present"; xml_like, $xml, '/xpath/expr', qr/expected/, "regex text present"; xml_is_deeply, $xml, '/xpath/expr', $xml2, "structure and contents match"; # Not yet implemented: # xml_like_deeply would be nice too... DESCRIPTION
"Test::XML::Simple" is a very basic class for testing XML. It uses the XPath syntax to locate nodes within the XML. You can also check all or part of the structure vs. an XML fragment. TEST ROUTINES
xml_valid $xml, 'test description' Pass an XML file or fragment to this test; it succeeds if the XML (fragment) is valid. xml_node $xml, $xpath, 'test description' Checks the supplied XML to see if the node described by the supplied XPath expression is present. Test fails if it is not present. xml_is_long $xml, $xpath, $value, 'test description' Finds the node corresponding to the supplied XPath expression and compares it to the supplied value. Succeeds if the two values match. Uses Test::More's "is" function to do the comparison. xml_is $xml, $xpath, $value, 'test description' Finds the node corresponding to the supplied XPath expression and compares it to the supplied value. Succeeds if the two values match. Uses Test::LongString's "is_string" function to do the test. xml_like_long $xml, $xpath, $regex, 'test description' Find the XML corresponding to the the XPath expression and check it against the supplied regular expression. Succeeds if they match. Uses Test::More's "like" function to do the comparison. xml_like $xml, $xpath, $regex, 'test description' Find the XML corresponding to the the XPath expression and check it against the supplied regular expression. Succeeds if they match. Uses Test::LongString's "like_string" function to do the test. xml_is_deeply_long $xml, $xpath, $xml2, 'test description' Find the piece of XML corresponding to the XPath expression, and compare its structure and contents to the second XML (fragment) supplied. Succeeds if they match in structure and content. Uses Test::More's "is" function to do the comparison. xml_is_deeply $xml, $xpath, $xml2, 'test description' Find the piece of XML corresponding to the XPath expression, and compare its structure and contents to the second XML (fragment) supplied. Succeeds if they match in structure and content. Uses Test::LongString's "is_string" function to do the test. AUTHOR

NAME
Template::XML - XML plugins for the Template Toolkit SYNOPSIS
[% USE XML; dom = XML.dom('foo.xml'); xpath = XML.xpath('bar.xml'); simple = XML.simple('baz.xml'); rss = XML.simple('news.rdf'); %] DESCRIPTION
The Template-XML distribution provides a number of Template Toolkit plugin modules for working with XML. The Template::Plugin::XML module is a front-end to the various other XML plugin modules. Through this you can access XML files and direc- tories of XML files via the Template::Plugin::XML::File and Template::Plugin::XML::Directory modules (which subclass from the Tem- plate::Plugin::File and Template::Plugin::Directory modules respectively). You can then create a Document Object Model (DOM) from an XML file (Template::Plugin::XML::DOM), examine it using XPath queries (Template::Plugin::XML::XPath), turn it into a Perl data structure (Tem- plate::Plugin::XML::Simple) or parse it as an RSS (RDF Site Summary) file. The basic XML plugins were distributed as part of the Template Toolkit until version 2.15 released in May 2006. At this time they were extracted into this separate Template-XML distribution and an alpha version of this Template::Plugin::XML front-end module was added. AUTHORS
Andy Wardley wrote the Template Toolkit plugin modules, with assistance from Simon Matthews in the case of the XML::DOM plugin. Matt Sergeant wrote the XML::XPath module. Enno Derksen and Clark Cooper wrote the XML::DOM module. Jonathan Eisenzopf wrote the XML::RSS mod- ule. Grant McLean wrote the XML::Simple module. Clark Cooper and Larry Wall wrote the XML::Parser module. James Clark wrote the expat library. COPYRIGHT
