XML::LibXML::RegExp(3)User Contributed Perl DocumentatioXML::LibXML::RegExp(3)

NAME
       XML::LibXML::RegExp - XML::LibXML::RegExp - interface to	libxml2
       regular expressions

SYNOPSIS
	 use XML::LibXML;
	 my $compiled_re = XML::LibXML::RegExp->new('[0-9]{5}(-[0-9]{4})?');
	 if ($compiled_re->isDeterministic()) {	... }
	 if ($compiled_re->matches($string)) { ... }

	 $compiled_re =	XML::LibXML::RegExp->new( $regexp_str );
	 $bool = $compiled_re->matches($string);
	 $bool = $compiled_re->isDeterministic();

DESCRIPTION
       This is a perl interface	to libxml2's implementation of regular
       expressions, which are used e.g.	for validation of XML Schema simple
       types (pattern facet).

       new()
	     $compiled_re = XML::LibXML::RegExp->new( $regexp_str );

	   The constructor takes a string containing a regular expression and
	   returns a compiled regexp object.

       matches($string)
	     $bool = $compiled_re->matches($string);

	   Given a string value, returns a true	value if the value is matched
	   by the compiled regular expression.

       isDeterministic()
	     $bool = $compiled_re->isDeterministic();

	   Returns a true value	if the regular expression is deterministic;
	   returns false otherwise. (See the definition	of determinism in the
	   XML spec (<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#determinism>))
