=head1 NAME

XML::LibXML::Schema - XML Schema Validation

=head1 SYNOPSIS



  use XML::LibXML;
  $doc = XML::LibXML->new->parse_file($url);

  $xmlschema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new( location => $filename_or_url, no_network => 1 );
  $xmlschema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new( string => $xmlschemastring, no_network => 1 );
  eval { $xmlschema->validate( $doc ); };

=head1 DESCRIPTION

The XML::LibXML::Schema class is a tiny frontend to libxml2's XML Schema
implementation. Currently it supports only schema parsing and document
validation. As of 2.6.32, libxml2 only supports decimal types up to 24 digits
(the standard requires at least 18).

=over 4

=item new

  $xmlschema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new( location => $filename_or_url, no_network => 1 );
  $xmlschema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new( string => $xmlschemastring, no_network => 1 );

The constructor of XML::LibXML::Schema needs to be called with list of
parameters. At least location or string parameter is required to specify source
of schema. Optional parameter no_network set to 1 cause that parser would not
access network and optional parameter recover set 1 cause that parser would not
call die() on errors.

It is important, that each schema only have a single source.

The location parameter allows one to parse a schema from the filesystem or a
(non-HTTPS) URL.

The string parameter will parse the schema from the given XML string.

Note that the constructor will die() if the schema does not meed the
constraints of the XML Schema specification.


=item validate

  eval { $xmlschema->validate( $doc ); };

This function allows one to validate a (parsed) document against the given XML
Schema. The argument of this function should be a L<<<<<< XML::LibXML::Document >>>>>> object. If this function succeeds, it will return 0, otherwise it will die()
and report the errors found. Because of this validate() should be always
evaluated.
