MKDoc::XML::Decode - Expands XML entities
my $decode = new MKDoc::XML::Decode qw/xml xhtml numeric/;
# $xml is now "Chris' Baloon"
my $xml = MKDoc::XML::Decode->process ("Chris' Baloon");
MKDoc::XML::Decode is a very simple module with pluggable entity decoding mechanism. At the moment there are three modules:
xml - Decodes ' " > < and & xhtml - Decodes XHTML entities such as é numeric - Decodes numeric entities such as A
This module and its counterpart MKDoc::XML::Encode are used by MKDoc::XML::Dumper to XML-encode and XML-decode litterals.
Constructs a new decode object using the modules specified in @modules.
Decodes $stuff and returns it into $decoded.
Any entity which is not recognized will be returned as is but will trigger a warning.
