NAME

HTML::DOM::CharacterData - A base class shared by HTML::DOM::Text and ::Comment

VERSION

Version 0.055

DESCRIPTION

This class provides those methods that are shared both by comments and text nodes in an HTML DOM tree.

METHODS

Attributes

The following DOM attributes are supported:

data

The textual data that the node contains.

length

The number of characters in data.

length16

A standards-compliant version of length that counts UTF-16 bytes instead of characters.

Other Methods

substringData ( $offset, $length )

Returns a substring of the data. If $length is omitted, all characters from $offset to the end of the data are returned.

substringData16

A UTF-16 version of substringData.

appendData ( $str )

Appends $str to the node's data.

insertData ( $offset, $str )

Inserts $str at the given $offset, which is understood to be the number of Unicode characters from the beginning of the node's data.

insertData16

Like insertData, but $offset is taken to be the number of UTF-16 (16-bit) bytes.

deleteData ( $offset, $length )

Deletes the specified data. If $length is omitted, all characters from $offset to the end of the node's data are deleted.

deleteData16

A UTF-16 version of the above.

replaceData ( $offset, $length, $str )

This replaces the substring specified by $offset and $length with $str.
