XML::Genx::Simple
A slightly simpler wrapper class for genx

XML::Genx::Simple - A slightly simpler wrapper class for genx


NAME

XML::Genx::Simple - A slightly simpler wrapper class for genx


SYNOPSIS


  use XML::Genx::Simple;

  my $w = XML::Genx::Simple->new;

  eval {

    # <root><foo id="1">bar</foo></root>

    $w->StartDocFile( *STDOUT );

    $w->StartElementLiteral( 'root' );

    $w->Element( foo => 'bar', id => 1 );

    $w->EndElement;

    $w->EndDocument;

  };

  die "Writing XML failed: $@" if $@;


DESCRIPTION

This class provides some helper methods to make using XML::Genx simpler in the common case.


METHODS

StartDocString ( )
Starts a new document, and collects the result into a string.

This method is offered as an extension to the genx API since it is significantly quicker. Many thanks to A. Pagaltzis for suggesting it.

GetDocString ( )
Returns the string from the current writer object.

NB: This is only guaranteed to be well-formed XML after you have called EndDocument().

NB: This will only produce sensible output if you've called StartDocString() previously.

Element ( NAME, TEXT, [ATTRS] )
Outputs <NAME>TEXT</NAME> in one go. NAME can be either a text string or an XML::Genx::Element object.

If NAME is a text string, an XML::Genx::Element object will be created, used and cached. So there's no real advantage to passing one in.

Optionally, ATTRS can be passed in as a list of key/value pairs. Again, each key used as an attribute name will be cached.

This method provides no namespace support.
