XML::PatAct::MatchName - A pattern module for matching element names
use XML::PatAct::MatchName; my $matcher = XML::PatAct::MatchName->new(); my $patterns = [ 'foo' => ACTION, 'bar/foo' => ACTION, ... ];
XML::PatAct::MatchName is a pattern module for use with PatAct drivers for applying pattern-action lists to XML parses or trees. XML::PatAct::MatchName is a simple pattern module that uses just element names to match on. If multiple names are supplied seperated by `
/' characters, then all of the parent element names must match as well.
The order of patterns in the list is not significant. XML::PatAct::MatchName will use the most specific match. Using the synopsis above as an example, if you have an element `
bar/foo' will match if `
foo' is in an element `
bar', otherwise just the pattern with `
foo' will match.
