XML::Elemental(3)     User Contributed Perl Documentation    XML::Elemental(3)

NAME
       XML::Elemental -	simplistic and perlish handling	of XML data.

SYNOPSIS
	use XML::Elemental;
	my $p =	XML::Elemental->parser;
	my $xml	= '<foo>There is a <helloworld/> in my soup.</foo>';
	my $tree = $p->parse_string($xml);

DESCRIPTION
       XML::Elemental is a SAX-based package for easily	parsing	XML documents
       into a more native and mostly object-oriented perl form.

       The development of this package grew out	of the desire for something
       more object-oriented then XML::Simple and was more simplistic and
       perlish then the	various	standard XML API modules such as XML::DOM.
       Easier installation of modules was also a contributing factor.

       Original	this package began as a	style plugin to	XML::Parser. That
       proved to be too	limiting that it was expanded. With the	release	of
       version 2.0 the package was refactored to take advantage	of any parser
       supporting SAX that includes the	pure perl option that ships with
       XML::SAX.

METHODS
       MT::Elemental->parser([\%options])
	   Instantiates	and returns a SAX2 parser using
	   XML::Elemental::SAXHandler as its handler and thereby inherits all
	   the methods found in	XML::SAX::Base.

	   The parser method can optionally take a hash	reference containing
	   SAX options.	The hash reference can also include document, element
	   and character class names to	use during processing. The following
	   keys	and their defaults are used:

	       KEY	   DEFAULT
	       Document	   XML::Elemental::Document
	       Element	   XML::Elemental::Element
	       Characters  XML::Elemental::Characters

	   Any class that supports the same method signatures as the
	   XML::Elemental default classes can be used.
