XML::PatAct::MatchName - A pattern module for matching element names
my $matcher = XML::PatAct::MatchName->new();
my $patterns = [ 'foo' => ACTION,
'bar/foo' => ACTION,
XML::PatAct::MatchName is a pattern module for use with PatAct drivers for
applying pattern-action lists to XML parses or trees. XML::PatAct::MatchName
is a simple pattern module that uses just element names to match on. If
multiple names are supplied seperated by `"/"' characters, then all
of the parent element names must match as well.
The order of patterns in the list is not significant. XML::PatAct::MatchName
will use the most specific match. Using the synopsis above as an example, if
you have an element `"foo"', `"bar/foo"' will match if
`"foo"' is in an element `"bar"', otherwise just the
pattern with `"foo"' will match.
