XML::Grove::Path(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation XML::Grove::Path(3)
XML::Grove::Path - return the object at a path
# Using at_path method on XML::Grove::Document or XML::Grove::Element:
$xml_obj = $grove_object->at_path("/some/path");
# Using an XML::Grove::Path instance:
$pather = XML::Grove::Path->new();
$xml_obj = $pather->at_path($grove_object);
"XML::Grove::Path" returns XML objects located at paths. Paths are strings of element
names or XML object types seperated by slash ("/") characters. Paths must always start at
the grove object passed to `"at_path()"'. "XML::Grove::Path" is not XPath, but it should
become obsolete when an XPath implementation is available.
Paths are like URLs
The path segments can be element names or object types, the objects types are named using:
The `"#any"' object type matches any type of object, it is essentially an index into the
contents of the parent object.
The `"#text"' object type treats text objects as if they are not normalized. Two consecu-
tive text objects are seperate text objects.
