XML::Pastor::Builtin::List - Ancestor of all classes that correspond to
whitespace separated list W3C simple types.
This module is used internally by XML::Pastor. You do not normally know much
about this module to actually use XML::Pastor. It is documented here for
completeness and for XML::Pastor developers. Do not count on the interface of
this module. It may change in any of the subsequent releases. You have been
This class descends from XML::Pastor::Builtin::SimpleType.
This class is used for grouping the builtin
classes that have whitespace
content. Some utility methods are defined for easing the
use of such content.
W3C types have a list
nature on their own, such as
(whitespace seperated NMTOKEN
values) or IDREFS
In W3C schemas it is also possible to define a simple type to be a list
of another atomic simple type.
This class inherits many methods from its ancestors. Please see
XML::Pastor::Builtin::SimpleType for more methods.
my $object = XML::Pastor::Builtin::List->fromList('hello', 'world');
Creates a new object and sets its value by joining the values passed as the
parameter list with a space seperator.
Sets the object's value by joining the values passed as the parameter list with
a space seperator.
@list = $object->toList();
Splits the object's value on whitespace and returns the resulting list.
overriden from XML::Pastor::SimpleType.
Normaly the xml_validate
method checks an atomic value. However,
types are aggregate values made up of items
whose type is
known via itemType
This method will first split the object's value into a list and then run
on each item by instantiating an simple type object on
their own and invoking the xml_validate
method on each of them. If
those invocations return TRUE, this method will return TRUE.
Otherwise, it would have died along the way before even returning FALSE.
There no known bugs at this time, but this doesn't mean there are aren't any.
Note that, although some testing was done prior to releasing the module, this
should still be considered alpha code. So use it at your own risk.
Note that there may be other bugs or limitations that the author is not aware
