NAME

File::Find::Rule::XPath - rule to match on XPath expressions

SYNOPSIS

  use File::Find::Rule::XPath;
  
  my @files = File::Find::Rule->file
              ->name('*.dkb')
              ->xpath( '//section/title[contains(., "Crustacean")]' )
              ->in($root);

DESCRIPTION

This module extends File::Find::Rule to provide the ability to locate XML files which match a given XPath expression.

METHODS

xpath( $xpath_expression )

Matches XML files which contain one or more nodes matching the given XPath expression. Files which are not 'well formed' XML are silently skipped.

If no XPath expression is supplied, the value '/' is used. This will match all files which are well formed XML.
