NAME

Catmandu::Exporter::XSD - Export and validate XML documents

SYNOPSIS

    # Convert one shiporder YAML to XML
    catmandu convert YAML to XSD --root '{}shiporder'
                                 --schemas demo/order/*.xsd < shiporder.YAML

    # Same as above but store multiple shiporders in the YAML into a separate file
    catmandu convert YAML to XSD --root '{}shiporder'
                                 --schemas demo/order/*.xsd
                                 --split 1
                                 < shiporder.YAML

    # Same as above but use template toolkit to pack the XML into an container
    # (The xml record is stored in the 'xml' key which can be retrieved in the
    # template by [% xml %])
    catmandu convert YAML to XSD --root '{}shiporder'
                                 --schemas demo/order/*.xsd
                                 --template_before t/xml_header.tt
                                 --template t/xml_record.tt
                                 --template t/xml_footer.tt
                                 < shiporder.YAML

    # Print to STDOUT

                        root => ...

DESCRIPTION

This is a Catmandu::Exporter for converting Perl into valided XML documents using an XSD schema file.

CONFIGURATION

file

Write output to a local file given by its path. Alternatively a scalar reference can be passed to write to a string.

fh

Write output to an IO::Handle. If not specified, Catmandu::Util::io is used to create the output stream from the file argument or by using STDOUT.

split

Optional. Don't write to the file (or STDOUT) and split the output documents into one or more files. E.g.

    catmandu ... to XSD --root ... --schemas ... --split 1  < data
split_pattern

Optional. Use a FORMAT as template for naming output files. Uses the '_id' field in the data or an incremental counter as input. E.g.

    # Creates 000001.xml , 000002.xml, etc
    catmandu ... to XSD --root ... --schemas ... --split 1 --split_pattern '%-6.6d.xml' < data
split_directory

Optional. Specify the directory in which the split files need to be written.

template

Optional. A template toolkit template to be used for creating each XML output record. Gets as input the input data plus the XML serialized form in the 'xml' field.

template_before

Optional. The template toolkit template to be used as XML header.

template_after

Optional. The template toolkit template to be used as XML footer.

fix

An ARRAY of one or more fixes or file scripts to be applied to imported items.

root

Required. The name (and namespace) of the root element of the XML document. E.g.:

    {}shiporder
    {http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3}mods
    {urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9}ead
schemas

Required. An array or comma separated list of XSD schema locations.

prefixes

Optional. An array or comma delimited string of namespace prefixes to be used hand handling XML files. E.g.

    # On the command line:
    catmandu ... --prefixes ead:urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9,...

    # In Perl
    prefixes => [
        ead => 'urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9' ,
        ... => ...
    ]
mixed

Optional. The handling of mixed element content. One of ATTRIBUTES (default), TEXTUAL, STRUCTURAL, XML_NODE, XML_STRING, CODE reference. See also Catmandu::XSD and XML::Compile::Translate::Reader

METHODS

Every Catmandu::Importer is a Catmandu::Iterable all its methods are inherited.
