XML::Stream::Node - Functions to make building and parsing the tree easier to work with. SYNOPSIS
Just a collection of functions that do not need to be in memory if you choose one of the other methods of data storage. This creates a hierarchy of Perl objects and provides various methods to manipulate the structure of the tree. It is much like the C library libxml. FORMAT
The result of parsing: <foo><head id="a">Hello <em>there</em></head><bar>Howdy<ref/></bar>do</foo> would be: [ tag: foo att: {} children: [ tag: head att: {id=>"a"} children: [ tag: "__xmlstream__:node:cdata" children: "Hello " ] [ tag: em children: [ tag: "__xmlstream__:node:cdata" children: "there" ] ] ] [ tag: bar children: [ tag: "__xmlstream__:node:cdata" children: "Howdy " ] [ tag: ref ] ] [ tag: "__xmlstream__:node:cdata" children: "do" ] ] METHODS
new() - creates a new node. If you specify tag, then the root new(tag) tag is set. If you specify data, then cdata is added new(tag,cdata) to the node as well. Returns the created node. get_tag() - returns the root tag of the node. set_tag(tag) - set the root tag of the node to tag. add_child(node) - adds the specified node as a child to the current add_child(tag) node, or creates a new node with the specified tag add_child(tag,cdata) as the root node. Returns the node added. remove_child(node) - removes the child node from the current node. remove_cdata() - removes all of the cdata children from the current node. add_cdata(string) - adds the string as cdata onto the current nodes child list. get_cdata() - returns all of the cdata children concatenated together into one string. get_attrib(attrib) - returns the value of the attrib if it is valid, or returns undef is attrib is not a real attribute. put_attrib(hash) - for each key/value pair specified, create an attribute in the node. remove_attrib(attrib) - remove the specified attribute from the node. add_raw_xml(string,[string,...]) - directly add a string into the XML packet as the last child, with no translation. get_raw_xml() - return all of the XML in a single string, undef if there is no raw XML to include. remove_raw_xml() - remove all raw XML strings. children() - return all of the children of the node in a list. attrib() - returns a hash containing all of the attributes on this node. copy() - return a recursive copy of the node. XPath(path) - run XML::Stream::XPath on this node. XPathCheck(path) - run XML::Stream::XPath on this node and return 1 or 0 to see if it matches or not. GetXML() - return the node in XML string form.

Element - an <element> API
new ( name, prefix ) Create a new Element node with name "name" and prefix "prefix". The name be "prefix:local" if prefix is defined. I know that sounds wierd, but it works ;-) getName Returns the name (including "prefix:" if defined) of this element. getLocalName Returns just the local part of the name (the bit after "prefix:"). getChildNodes Returns the children of this element. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref. getChildNode ( pos ) Returns the child at position pos. appendChild ( childnode ) Appends the child node to the list of current child nodes. getAttribute ( name ) Returns the attribute node with key name. getAttributes / getAttributeNodes Returns the attribute nodes. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref. appendAttribute ( attrib_node) Appends the attribute node to the list of attributes (XML::XPath stores attributes in order). getNamespace ( prefix ) Returns the namespace node by the given prefix getNamespaces / getNamespaceNodes Returns the namespace nodes. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref. appendNamespace ( ns_node ) Appends the namespace node to the list of namespaces. getPrefix Returns the prefix of this element getExpandedName Returns the expanded name of this element (not yet implemented right). string_value For elements, the string_value is the concatenation of all string_values of all text-descendants of the element node in document order. toString ( [ norecurse ] ) Output (and all children) the node to a string. Doesn't process children if the norecurse option is a true value. perl v5.18.2 2003-01-26 XPath::Node::Element(3)
