XML::XUpdate::LibXML - Simple implementation of XUpdate format
use XML::LibXML; use XML::XUpdate::LibXML;
$parser = XML::LibXML-> new()
; $dom =
$parser->parse_file("mydoc.xml"); $actions =
$xupdate = XML::XUpdate::LibXML-> new()
, $actions); print
This module implements the XUpdate format described in XUpdate Working Draft
from 2000-09-14 (http://www.xmldb.org/xupdate/xupdate-wd.html). The
implementation is based on XML::LibXML DOM API.
my $xupdate = XML::XUpdate::LibXML->new();
Creates a new XUpdate object. You may use this object to update several
different DOM trees using several different XUpdate descriptions. The
advantage of it is that an xupdate object remembers values all variables
declared in XUpdate documents.
Tell the XPath engine to resolve given namespace prefix as the given namespace
URI. This is particularly useful to bind a default namespace to a prefix
because XPath doesn't honour default namespaces.
This function takes two DOM trees as its arguments. It works by updating the
first tree according to all XUpdate commands included in the second one. All
XUpdate commands must be children of the root element of the second tree and
must all belong to XUpdate namespace "http://www.xmldb.org/xupdate".
The namespace URI may be changed with set_namespace method.
You may use this method to change the namespace of XUpdate elements. The default
namespace is "http://www.xmldb.org/xupdate".
Returns XUpdate namespace URI used by XUpdate processor to identify XUpdate
In 0.3.x different implementation of XUpdate variables is used. Now variables
contain the actual objects resulting from an XPath query, and not their
textual content as in versions 0.2.x of XML::XUpdate::LibXML.
Also, value-of instruction results in copies of the actual objects it selects
rather than their textual content as in 0.2.x.
I hope the new implementation is more conformant with the (not very clear)
XUpdate Working Draft and therefore more compatible with other XUpdate
Commands are applied to all nodes of the select nodeset, not just the first one.
XML::LibXML::XPathContext is used for variable code providing more flexible and
powerfull implementation. New and hopefully correct implementation of the
problematic child attribute of update command has been introduced.
Support for registrering namespace prefix with the XPath engine (allows binding
document's default namespace to a prefix).
Several bug fixes.
