NAME
       XML::LibXML::Namespace -	XML::LibXML Namespace Implementation

SYNOPSIS
	 use XML::LibXML;
	 # Only	methods	specific to Namespace nodes are	listed here,
	 # see the XML::LibXML::Node manpage for other methods

	 my $ns	= XML::LibXML::Namespace->new($nsURI);
	 print $ns->nodeName();
	 print $ns->name();
	 $localname = $ns->getLocalName();
	 print $ns->getData();
	 print $ns->getValue();
	 print $ns->value();
	 $known_uri = $ns->getNamespaceURI();
	 $known_prefix = $ns->getPrefix();
	 $key =	$ns->unique_key();

DESCRIPTION
       Namespace nodes are returned by both
       $element->findnodes('namespace::foo') or	by $node->getNamespaces().

       The namespace node API is not part of any current DOM API, and so it is
       quite minimal. It should	be noted that namespace	nodes are not a	sub
       class of	XML::LibXML::Node, however Namespace nodes act a lot like
       attribute nodes,	and similarly named methods will return	what you would
       expect if you treated the namespace node	as an attribute. Note that in
       order to	fix several inconsistencies between the	API and	the
       documentation, the behavior of some functions have been changed in
       1.64.

METHODS
       new
	     my	$ns = XML::LibXML::Namespace->new($nsURI);

	   Creates a new Namespace node. Note that this	is not a 'node'	as an
	   attribute or	an element node. Therefore you can't do	call all
	   XML::LibXML::Node Functions.	All functions available	for this node
	   are listed below.

	   Optionally you can pass the prefix to the namespace constructor. If
	   this	second parameter is omitted you	will create a so called
	   default namespace. Note, the	newly created namespace	is not bound
	   to any document or node, therefore you should not expect it to be
	   available in	an existing document.

       declaredURI
	   Returns the URI for this namespace.

       declaredPrefix
	   Returns the prefix for this namespace.

       nodeName
	     print $ns->nodeName();

	   Returns "xmlns:prefix", where prefix	is the prefix for this
	   namespace.

       name
	     print $ns->name();

	   Alias for nodeName()

       getLocalName
	     $localname	= $ns->getLocalName();

	   Returns the local name of this node as if it	were an	attribute,
	   that	is, the	prefix associated with the namespace.

       getData
	     print $ns->getData();

	   Returns the URI of the namespace, i.e. the value of this node as if
	   it were an attribute.

       getValue
	     print $ns->getValue();

	   Alias for getData()

       value
	     print $ns->value();

	   Alias for getData()

       getNamespaceURI
	     $known_uri	= $ns->getNamespaceURI();

	   Returns the string "http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/"

       getPrefix
	     $known_prefix = $ns->getPrefix();

	   Returns the string "xmlns"

       unique_key
	     $key = $ns->unique_key();

	   This	method returns a key guaranteed	to be unique for this
	   namespace, and to always be the same	value for this namespace. Two
	   namespace objects return the	same key if and	only if	they have the
	   same	prefix and the same URI. The returned key value	is useful as a
	   key in hashes.
