That makes life a lot easier!

The only caveat I can think of is the refas plugin ie :

(refas tag="user")/path/to/user.xml(/refas) <p>Welcome back <user>username</user>, you were last here on : [time f +ormat="HH:MM:SS, DD/MM/YYY"]<user>lastvisit</user>[/time].</p>

Where <user> is not a known tag until refas creates a definition for it which maps the user tag data to the nodes in the user.xml file, and [time] takes an integer and gives back a formatted date/time string.

I was planning on expressing the difference between the three tag types by adding an attribute called aXML_class to the tags when converting them to standard XML :

(SQL mode="mask") <query> SELECT username,email FROM users; </query> <mask> [link action="showuser" username="<d>username</d>" ]<d>username</d>[/link], [link to="mailto:<d>email</d>"]<d>email</d>[/link] <br> </mask> (/SQL) Becomes : <SQL aXML_class="primary" mode="mask"> <query> SELECT username,email FROM users; </query> <mask> <link aXML_class="tertiary" action="showuser" username="<d>username</d>" ><d>username</d></link>, <link aXML_class="tertiary" to="mailto:<d>email</d>" ><d>email</d></link> <br> </mask> </SQL> Also when tags have tags embedded in their attributes like this : <a b="<c>d</c>">data</a> converting the expression to XML like this; <a aXML_class="standard"> <attr>b="<c aXML_class="standard">d</c>"</attr> <contents>data</contents> </a>

The examples above would map like this :

<SQL aXML_class="primary" mode="mask"> <query> SELECT username,email FROM users; </query> <mask> <link aXML_class="tertiary" action="showuser" username="<d>usern +ame</d>"><d>username</d></link>, <link aXML_class="tertiary" to="mailto://<d>email</d>"><d>email< +/d></link> <br> </mask> </SQL> becomes : my @nodes = ( Node->new( SQL => { aXML_class => 'primary', attr => { mode => "mask" }, contents => { '<query>SELECT * FRO +M users</query> <mask>', [ Node->new( link + => { aXML_class => 'tertiary', + attr => { action => 'showuser', + username => '<d>username<d>' }, + contents => '<d>username</d>' + } ), + + contents => '<d>username</d>' } ), Node->new( link + => { aXML_class => 'tertiary', + attr => { to => 'mailto://<d>email</d>' }, + contents => '<d>email</d>' + } ), ], '<br></mask>' } } ) ); and <a b="<c>d</c>">data</a> becomes : <a aXML_class="standard"> <attr>b="<c aXML_class="standard">d</c>"</attr> <contents>data</contents> </a> then becomes : my @nodes = ( Node->new( a => { aXML_class => 'standard', attr => { b => Node->new ( c => +{ aXML_class => 'standard', + contents => 'd' + } ) }, contents => 'data' } } ) );

    Just hacked this together, it only knows about standard tags which are named, and doesn't know about tag attributes, but it is working.

    #!/usr/bin/perl use Modern::Perl; my $knownCmds = '(use|conf|qd)'; $_ = qq@ <html lang="<qd>action</qd>"> <head> <title><conf>site_title</conf></title> </head> <body> some orphan text <use>actions/<qd>action</qd>/somefile.aXML</use> <b>orphan</b> <conf>a</conf> </body> </html> @; #tokenise negatable marker s@`@<caret>@gs; #any text before first knownCmd + s@(.*?)<$knownCmds>@'$1',\n\n<$2>@s; #put negatable marker next to knownCmds + s@<$knownCmds>@<$1>`@gs; s@</$knownCmds>@`</$1>@gs; #any text between any two opens + s@<$knownCmds>`([^`]*?)<$knownCmds>`@<$1>`\n'$2',\n\n<$3>`@gs; #any text between any two closes s@`</$knownCmds>([^`]*?)`</$knownCmds>@`</$1>\n'$2',\n\n`</$3>@gs; #any text between a close and an open s@</$knownCmds>([^`]*?)<$knownCmds>@</$1>\n\n'$2',\n\n<$3>@gs; #any text after last known close s@(.*)</$knownCmds>(.*)@$1</$2>\n'$3'@s; #remove remaining negatable markers s@`@@gs; #de-tokenise negatable marker s@<caret>@`@gs; #convert non-nested tags to node calls + s@<$knownCmds>([^<>]*?)</\1>@Node->new ( $1 => '$2' ),@gs; #convert everything else s@<$knownCmds>(.*?)</\1>@Node->new ( \[ $2 \] ),@gs; #get rid of comma before end of array s@,(\s+?)\]@]@gs; say 'my @nodes = ('; say; say ');';
    OUTPUT :
    my @nodes = ( ' <html lang="', Node->new ( qd => 'action' ), '"> <head> <title>', Node->new ( conf => 'site_title' ), '</title> </head> <body> some orphan text ', Node->new ( [ 'actions/', Node->new ( qd => 'action' ), '/somefile.aXML', ] ), ' <b>orphan</b> ', Node->new ( conf => 'a' ), ' </body> </html> ' );
