XML::SAX::Expat - SAX2 Driver for Expat (XML::Parser)
my $h = XML::SAX::MyFooHandler->new;
my $p = XML::SAX::Expat->new(Handler => $h);
This is an implementation of a SAX2 driver sitting on top of Expat (XML::Parser) which Ken MacLeod posted to perl-xml and which I have updated.
It is still incomplete, though most of the basic SAX2 events should be available. The SAX2 spec is currently available from http://perl-xml.sourceforge.net/perl-sax/.
A more friendly URL as well as a PODification of the spec are in the works.
The methods defined in this class correspond to those listed in the PerlSAX2 specification, available above.
* [ Features supported by ancestors ]
Turning one of the first two on also turns the other on (this maps to the XML::Parser ParseParamEnts option). This may be fixed in the future, so don't rely on this behaviour.
XML::Parser has no listed callbacks for the following events, which are therefore not presently generated (ways may be found in the future):
* start_entity / end_entity
Ways of signalling them are welcome. In addition to those, set_document_locator is not yet called.
