NAME

Test::XML::Ordered - compare two XML files for equivalency, in an ordered fashion.

SYNOPSIS

    use Test::More tests => 1;

    use Test::XML::Ordered;

    # TEST:$c++;
    is_xml_ordered(
        [ string => $got_xml_source, ], # Got.
        [ string => $expected_xml_source, ], # Expected.
        {}, # Options
        "Equivalent", # Blurb
    );

DESCRIPTION

This module is a test module which compares two XML files for equivalence in an ordered fashion. It was written after I (= Shlomi Fish) realised that XML::SemanticDiff, which is the basis for Test::XML, and which I maintain, compares two XML files for equivalence in a "semantic" fashion where elements can be present in several possible orders. (It does not always do the right thing with this respect, but even if it did, it is not normally what I want.).

Other advantages of Test::XML::Ordered are:

  • Based on XML::LibXML instead of XML::Parser.

  • Handles namespaces properly.

EXPORTS

is_xml_ordered($got_params, $expected_params, $args, $message)

Compares two XMLs for equivalance. $got_params and $expected_params are array references passed to XML::LibXML::Reader . $args is an hash reference of options (currently not used but will be used in the future). $message is the blurb.

METHODS
