VERSION

version 0.151401

SYNOPSIS

Make XML production simpler, just like XML::Simple with attributes, comments and processing instructions.

    use XML::Writer;
    use XML::WriterX::Simple;
    
    my $writer = new XML::Writer(OUTPUT => \*STDOUT, DATA_INDENT => 1, DATA_MODE => 1);
    $writer->xmlDecl('UTF-8');
    
    $writer->produce( docTag => [   #an ARRAY ref will produce ordered children
            ':attr' => [ id => 42, time => localtime() ], 
            '"' => \&simple_producer,
            '#foobar' => "comment after content tag",
            footer => { 
                ':name' => 'bar',   #unordered arguments
                ':id'   => 6*7,
                '"' => 'Text content',
                child1 => 'val1',
                child2 => 'val2',
            }, #An hash ref may produce unordered children.
            '#foobar' => "comment after footer tag",
        ]
    );

    sub simple_producer{
        my ($writer, $tag) = @_;
        $writer->characters( 'foobar' );
        $writer->produce( dumy => [ ':attr1' => 'valattr1', child1 => 'valchild1', '"' => 'text1' ] );
    }

NAME

XML::WriterX::Simple - Make XML production simpler.

EXPORT

The only exposed methods is the produce method, injected in XML::Writer namespace.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

XML::Writer::produce( $writer, $tagName => $tagContent )

Produce XML tag of name $tagName with content generated by ... arguments depending on there name and forms.

The $tagName can begin with :

    - a '#' to produce a comment
    - a '?' to produce a processing instruction
    - a ':' to produce a attribute (when $tagContent is not an ARRAY/HASH)
    - a '.' when it is associated with a CODEREF, so it won't produce the tag itself.

or to produce orderd attributes, use the following:

    ':attr' => [ name => value, ... ]

To produce a text content, use $tagName = '"' (one double quote).

To produce an empty tag, provide an undef $content value.

The $tagContent can be any value such as SCALAR, ARRAY, HASH or CODE.

    #TODO: improve documentation here.

When a tag content is :

    - a SCALAR reference (not blessed) or a SCALAR, 
    - a ARRAY reference (not blessed), 
    - a HASH reference (not blessed), 
    - a CODE reference, then the start-tag will be generated before to call the CODE and the end-tag tag will be produce after that call, but only f the tag does NOT begin with a DOT (.).
    - anything else, producer will use the perl built in stringification.

stringify

Internal use, return argument(s) in a flattened format.

arrange_args ( $writer, %arguments )

Internal use, split arguments into @attr[ibutes], @children and $text.

produce_content ( $writer, $tag, $content )

Internal use, will produce the tag content.
