XML::Element(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation XML::Element(3)

XML::Element - XML elements with the same interface as HTML::Element

  [See HTML::Element]

TODO: test and document this: with no tagname set, assumes ALL all-whitespace nodes are ignorable!

Redirects to endtag_XML

Redirects to starttag_XML

  $s = $doc->as_XML()
Returns a string representing in XML the element and its descendants.

  $start = $doc->starttag_XML();
Returns a string representing the complete start tag for the element. Except for CDATA.

  $end = $doc->endtag_XML();
Returns a string representing the complete end tag for this element. I.e., "</", tag name, and ">". Except for CDATA.

This is just a subclass of HTML::Element. It works basically the same as HTML::Element, except that tagnames and attribute names aren't forced to lowercase, as they are in HTML::Element.
HTML::Element describes everything you can do with this class.

Has currently no handling of namespaces.

XML::TreeBuilder for a class that actually builds XML::Element structures.
HTML::Element for all documentation.
XML::DOM and XML::Twig for other XML document tree interfaces.
XML::Generator for more fun.
