NAME

Template::Plugin::XML::DOM - simple Template Toolkit plugin interfacing to the XML::DOM module

SYNOPSIS

    [% USE doc = XML.DOM('/path/to/file.xml') %]

    # print all HREF attributes of all CODEBASE elements
    [% FOREACH node = doc.getElementsByTagName('CODEBASE') %]
       * [% s.getAttribute('href') %]     # or just '[% s.href %]'
    [% END %]

    # see XML::DOM docs for other methods provided by this object

PRE-REQUISITES

This plugin requires that the XML::Parser and XML::DOM modules be installed. These are available from CPAN:

    http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-module/XML

DESCRIPTION

This is a very simple Template Toolkit Plugin interface to the XML::DOM module. The plugin loads the XML::DOM module, instantiates a parser and parser the file passed by name as a parameter. An XML::DOM::Node object is returned through which the XML document can be traverse. See XML::DOM for full details.

This plugin also provides an AUTOLOAD method for XML::DOM::Node which calls getAttribute() for any undefined methods. Thus, you can use the short form of

    [% node.attribute %]

in place of

    [% node.getAttribute('attribute') %]
