NAME

XML::Jing - Validate XML files using an RNG schema using the Jing tool

VERSION

version 0.04

SYNOPSIS

        use XML::Jing;
        my $jing = XML::Jing->new('path/to/rng','use compact RNG');
        my $error = $jing->validate('path/to/xml');
        if(!$error){
                print 'no errors!';
        }else{
                print $error;
        }

DESCRIPTION

This module is a simple interface to Jing which allows checking XML files for validity using an RNG file.

METHODS

new

Arguments: the path to the RNG file to use in validation, and a boolean indicating whether or not the given RNG file uses compact syntax (false means XML syntax)

Creates a new instance of XML::Jing.

validate

Argument: path to the XML file to validate

Returns: The first error found in the document, or undef if no errors were found.

TODO

Jing has more functionality and options than what I have interfaced with here.

Also, it would be nice to be able to get ALL of the errors in an XML file, instead of jut the first one.
