NAME

XML::PatAct::MatchName - A pattern module for matching element names

SYNOPSIS

 use XML::PatAct::MatchName;

 my $matcher = XML::PatAct::MatchName->new();

 my $patterns = [ 'foo' => ACTION,
                  'bar/foo' => ACTION,
                  ... ];

DESCRIPTION

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 `foo', `bar/foo' will match if `foo' is in an element `bar', otherwise just the pattern with `foo' will match.
