XML::XPath::PerlSAX - A PerlSAX event generator for my weird node structure


        use XML::XPath;
        use XML::XPath::PerlSAX;
        use XML::DOM::PerlSAX;

        my $xp = XML::XPath->new(filename => 'test.xhtml');
        my $paras = $xp->find('/html/body/p');

        my $handler = XML::DOM::PerlSAX->new();
        my $generator = XML::XPath::PerlSAX->new( Handler => $handler );

        foreach my $node ($paras->get_nodelist) {
                my $domtree = $generator->parse($node);
                # do something with $domtree


This module generates PerlSAX events to pass to a PerlSAX handler such as XML::DOM::PerlSAX. It operates specifically on my weird tree format.

Unfortunately SAX doesn't seem to cope with namespaces, so these are lost completely. I believe SAX2 is doing namespaces.


The XML::DOM::PerlSAX handler I tried was completely broken (didn't even compile before I patched it a bit), so I don't know how correct this is or how far it will work.
