NAME

XML::TinyXML::Selector::XPath - XPath-compliant selector for XML::TinyXML

SYNOPSIS

      use XML::TinyXML;
    
      # first obtain an xml context:
      $xml = XML::TinyXML->new("rootnode", param => "somevalue", attrs => { attr1 => v1, attr2 => v2 });
    
      $selector = XML::TinyXML::Selector->new($xml, "XPath");
    
      #####
      Assuming the following xml data :
      <?xml version="1.0"?>
      <xml>
        <hello>world</hello>
        <foo>
          <![CDATA[ this should unescape <&; etc... :) ]]>
        </foo>
        <parent>
          <child1/>
          <child2/>
          <child3/>
        </parent>
        <parent>
          <blah>SECOND</blah>
        </parent>
      </xml>
      #####
    
      @res = $selector->select('//parent');
      @res = $selector->select('//child*');
      @res = $selector->select('/parent[2]/blah/..');
      @res = $selector->select('//blah/..');
      @res = $selector->select('//parent[1]/..');
      @res = $selector->select('//parent[1]/.');
      @res = $selector->select('//blah/.');
    
      # or using the unabbreviated syntax:
    
      @res = $selector->select('/descendant-or-self::node()/child::parent');
      @res = $selector->select('/descendant-or-self::node()/child::child*');
      @res = $selector->select('/child::parent[2]/child::blah/parent::node()');
      @res = $selector->select('/descendant-or-self::node()/child::blah/parent::node()');
      @res = $selector->select('/descendant-or-self::node()/child::parent[1]/parent::node()');
      @res = $selector->select('/descendant-or-self::node()/child::parent[1]/self::node()');
      @res = $selector->select('/descendant-or-self::node()/child::blah/self::node()');
