 use XML::Grove::AsCanonXML;

 # Using as_canon_xml method on XML::Grove objects:

XML::Grove::AsCanonXML objects hold the options used for writing the XML objects. Options can be supplied when the the object is created,

    $writer = XML::Grove::AsCanonXML->new( Comments => 1 );

or modified at any time before writing an XML object by setting the option directly in the `$writer' hash.

By default comments are not written to the output. Setting comment to TRUE will include comments in the output.
