Data::Dump::XML::Parser - Restore data dumped by Data::DumpXML


 use Data::Dump::XML::Parser;

 my $p = Data::Dump::XML::Parser->new;
 my $data = $p->parse_uri(shift || "test.xml");


The Data::Dump::XML::Parser is an XML::LibXML::SAX subclass that will recreate the data structure from the XML document produced by Data::Dump::XML. The parserfile() method returns a reference to an array of the values dumped.

The constructor method new() takes a single additional argument to that of XML::LibXML::SAX :

Blesser => CODEREF

A subroutine that is invoked for blessing of restored objects. The subroutine is invoked with two arguments; a reference to the object and a string containing the class name. If not provided the built in bless function is used.

For situations where the input file cannot necessarily be trusted and blessing arbitrary Classes might give the ability of malicious input to exploit the DESTROY methods of modules used by the code it is a good idea to provide an noop blesser:

  my $p = Data::Dump::XML::Parser->new(Blesser => sub {});
