XPath(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	      XPath(3)

NAME
       XML::DOM::XPath - Perl extension	to add XPath support to	XML::DOM,
       using XML::XPath	engine

SYNOPSIS
	 use XML::DOM::XPath;

	 my $parser= XML::DOM::Parser->new();
	 my $doc = $parser->parsefile ("file.xml");

	 # print all HREF attributes of	all CODEBASE elements
	 # compare with	the XML::DOM version to	see how	much easier it is to use
	 my @nodes = $doc->findnodes( '//CODEBASE[@HREF]/@HREF');
	 print $_->getValue, "\n" foreach (@nodes);

DESCRIPTION
       XML::DOM::XPath allows you to use XML::XPath methods to query a DOM.
       This is often much easier than relying only on getElementsByTagName.

       It lets you use all of the XML::DOM methods.

METHODS
       Those methods can be applied to a whole dom object or to	a node.

   findnodes($path)
       return a	list of	nodes found by $path.

   findnodes_as_string($path)
       return the nodes	found reproduced as XML. The result is not guaranteed
       to be valid XML though.

   findvalue($path)
       return the concatenation	of the text content of the result nodes

   exists($path)
       return true if the given	path exists.

   matches($path)
       return true if the node matches the path.

SEE ALSO
	 XML::DOM

	 XML::XPathEngine
