NAME
       XML::PatAct::Amsterdam -	An action module for simplistic	style-sheets

SYNOPSIS
	use XML::PatAct::Amsterdam;

	my $patterns = [ PATTERN => { Before =>	'before',
				      After => 'after' },
			 ... ];

	my $matcher = XML::PatAct::Amsterdam->new( I<OPTIONS> );

DESCRIPTION
       XML::PatAct::Amsterdam is a PerlSAX handler for applying	pattern-action
       lists to	XML parses or trees.  XML::PatAct::Amsterdam applies a very
       simple style sheet to an	instance and outputs the result.  Amsterdam
       gets it's name from the Amsterdam SGML Parser (ASP) which inspired this
       module.

       CAUTION:	Amsterdam is a very simple style module, you will run into
       it's limitations	quickly	with even moderately complex XML instances, be
       aware of	and prepared to	switch to more complete	style modules.

       New XML::PatAct::Amsterdam instances are	creating by calling `new()'.
       Parameters can be passed	as a list of key, value	pairs or a hash.  A
       Patterns	and Matcher options are	required.  The following OPTIONS are
       supported:

       Patterns
	   The pattern-action list to apply.  The list is an anonymous array
	   of pattern, action pairs.  Each action in the list contains either
	   or both a Before and	an After string	to copy	to the output before
	   and after processing	an XML element.	 The Before and	After strings
	   may contain attribute names enclosed	in square brackets (`"["' NAME
	   `"]"'), these are replaced with the value of	the attribute with
	   that	name.  The special NAME	`"_element"' will be replaced with the
	   element's name.

       Matcher
	   An instance of the pattern or query matching	module.

       Output
	   An IO::Handle or one	of it's	subclasses (such as IO::File), if this
	   parameter is	not present and	the AsString option is not used, the
	   module will write to	standard output.

       AsString
	   Return the generated	output as a string from	the `"parse()"'	method
	   of the PerlSAX event	generator.
