NAME

Finance::OFX::Tree - Convert Open Financial Exchange content into a tree similar to XML::Parser::EasyTree

SYNOPSIS

 use Finance::OFX::Tree
 my $tree = Finance::OFX::Tree::parse($ofxContent);

DESCRIPTION

Finance::OFX::Tree provides a single function, parse(), that accepts the contents of an OFX "file" as a scalar argument and returns a reference to an array tree representing the contents of the file. The array tree returned by parse() is remarkably similar to that created by XML::Parser::EasyTree.

NOTE

parse() can't process the OFX header block, only the <OFX> block.

EXAMPLE

If $ofxContent in the above code is...

 <OFX>
    <SIGNONMSGSRSV1>
        <SONRS>
            <STATUS>
                <CODE>0
                <SEVERITY>INFO
                <MESSAGE>SonRq is successful
            </STATUS>
            <DTSERVER>20080220161753.501[-8:PST]
            <LANGUAGE>ENG
            <FI>
                <ORG>DI
                <FID>074014187
            </FI>
        </SONRS>
    </SIGNONMSGSRSV1>
 </OFX>

...the resulting array tree will be...

 $VAR1 = [
   {
     'content' => [
       {
         'content' => [
           {
             'content' => [
               {
                 'content' => [
                   {
                     'content' => '0',
                     'name' => 'code'
                   },
                   {
                     'content' => 'INFO',
                     'name' => 'severity'
                   },
                   {
                     'content' => 'SonRq is successful',
                     'name' => 'message'
                   }
                 ],
                 'name' => 'status'
               },
               {
                 'content' => '20080220161753.501[-8:PST]',
                 'name' => 'dtserver'
               },
               {
                 'content' => 'ENG',
                 'name' => 'language'
               },
               {
                 'content' => [
                   {
                     'content' => 'DI',
                     'name' => 'org'
                   },
                   {
                     'content' => '074014187',
                     'name' => 'fid'
                   }
                 ],
                 'name' => 'fi'
               }
             ],
             'name' => 'sonrs'
           }
         ],
         'name' => 'signonmsgsrsv1'
       }
     ],
     'name' => 'ofx'

 ];
