in thread Thanks to Ikegami, Chromatic & Corion

But I can't think of any reason at all that you would need those sequences in the course of developing an aXML based system! They are pretty much for the plugins only, and the only use I've found for them so far is outputting complex litteral strings which contain aXML/Perl... a feature I've never needed until doing the PerlNights project.

Look, why don't I email you over a copy of the the PerlNights build as it stands right now, and then you can have a look at a proper working aXML system that renders an output very similar to PerlMonks. Then you can see why I never really gave the specials much thought at all, because I never needed to.

    Yes, escape could very well be for plugins only. I was quite clear about what problem I was trying to fix.

    and the only use I've found for them so far is outputting complex litteral strings which contain aXML/Perl...

    Or just plain XML. Without these fixes, I wouldn't be able to use aXML for two of the three XML formats I deal with, and it would be very fragile for those with which I could use aXML.

    Re^8: Thanks to Ikegami, Chromatic & Corion could be seen as a continuation of this post.

      So the big problem with aXML is the non-aXML compliant code you want to run through it?

      That's like trying to say that Perl is broken because it doesn't natively run COBOL.

      The (inc) command can load your file fine... then you just wrap it with a plugin of your design to get the output. In a similar way to how you would layer middleware components.

      How about you show me a fragment of the file, and tell me what output would be required from processing it, please make the task as extra-specially difficult as you possibly can, fiendishly difficult even, the harder the better. I'm pretty confident I can still show you an elegant solution.

        So the big problem with aXML is the non-aXML compliant code you want to run through it?

        Stop putting words in my mouth. I've said this at least three times already, the problem was that there was no way to create compliant code. (I think there still isn't, but aXML doesn't even compile, so I didn't verify.)

    I was going to test <special> and &lab; and interactions between them, but aXML doesn't compile.

    $ perl -we'use aXML::Engine;' Can't locate Conf.pm in @INC (@INC contains: ...) at aXML/Engine.pm li +ne 4. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at aXML/Engine.pm line 4. Compilation failed in require at -e line 1. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.

    Don't you dare say it's something I need to provide.

      No no, Conf.pm is there in the /var/www (or where-ever you extracted it to)

      I run plackup from the command line whilst inside that folder thusly;

      /var/www$ plackup -s Starman -r action.psgi -R /etc/perl,/var/www

        I don't want to run perlnights, I want to process an aXML template, but what you gave me is broken.
