XML::Stream::Node(3)  User Contributed Perl Documentation XML::Stream::Node(3)

       XML::Stream::Node - Functions to	make building and parsing the tree
       easier to work with.

	 Just a	collection of functions	that do	not need to be in memory if you
       choose one of the other methods of data storage.

	 This creates a	hierarchy of Perl objects and provides various methods
       to manipulate the structure of the tree.	 It is much like the C library

       The result of parsing:

	 <foo><head id="a">Hello <em>there</em></head><bar>Howdy<ref/></bar>do</foo>

       would be:

	 [ tag:	      foo
	   att:	      {}
	   children:  [	tag:	  head
			att:	  {id=>"a"}
			children: [ tag:      "__xmlstream__:node:cdata"
				    children: "Hello "
				  [ tag:      em
				    children: [	tag:	  "__xmlstream__:node:cdata"
						children: "there"
		      [	tag:	  bar
			children: [ tag:      "__xmlstream__:node:cdata"
				    children: "Howdy "
				  [ tag:      ref
		      [	tag:	  "__xmlstream__:node:cdata"
			children: "do"

	 new()		- creates a new	node.  If you specify tag, then	the root
	 new(tag)	  tag is set.  If you specify data, then cdata is added
	 new(tag,cdata)	  to the node as well.	Returns	the created node.

	 get_tag() - returns the root tag of the node.

	 set_tag(tag) -	set the	root tag of the	node to	tag.

	 add_child(node)      -	adds the specified node	as a child to the current
	 add_child(tag)		node, or creates a new node with the specified tag
	 add_child(tag,cdata)	as the root node.  Returns the node added.

	 remove_child(node) - removes the child	node from the current node.

	 remove_cdata()	- removes all of the cdata children from the current node.

	 add_cdata(string) - adds the string as	cdata onto the current nodes
			     child list.

	 get_cdata() - returns all of the cdata	children concatenated together
		       into one	string.

	 get_attrib(attrib) - returns the value	of the attrib if it is valid,
			      or returns undef is attrib is not	a real

	 put_attrib(hash) - for	each key/value pair specified, create an
			    attribute in the node.

	 remove_attrib(attrib) - remove	the specified attribute	from the node.

	 add_raw_xml(string,[string,...]) - directly add a string into the XML
					    packet as the last child, with no

	 get_raw_xml() - return	all of the XML in a single string, undef if there
			 is no raw XML to include.

	 remove_raw_xml() - remove all raw XML strings.

	 children() - return all of the	children of the	node in	a list.

	 attrib() - returns a hash containing all of the attributes on this

	 copy()	- return a recursive copy of the node.

	 XPath(path) - run XML::Stream::XPath on this node.

	 XPathCheck(path) - run	XML::Stream::XPath on this node	and return 1 or	0
			    to see if it matches or not.

	 GetXML() - return the node in XML string form.
