XML::XPath::Literal(3)User Contributed Perl DocumentatioXML::XPath::Literal(3)

NAME
       XML::XPath::Literal - Simple string values.

DESCRIPTION
       In XPath	terms a	Literal	is what	we know	as a string.

API
   new($string)
       Create a	new Literal object with	the value in $string. Note that	"
       and ' will be converted to " and ' respectively. That is not part
       of the XPath specification, but I consider it useful. Note though that
       you have	to go to extraordinary lengths in an XML template file (be it
       XSLT or whatever) to make use of	this:

	       <xsl:value-of select="&quot;I'm feeling &amp;quot;sad&amp;quot;&quot;"/>

       Which produces a	Literal	of:

	       I'm feeling "sad"

   value()
       Also overloaded as stringification, simply returns the literal string
       value.

   cmp($literal)
       Returns the equivalent of perl's	cmp operator against the given
       $literal.
