Definitive/Favorite Perl XML DOM + XSLT interface?by lestrrat (Deacon)
|on Jan 20, 2002 at 03:30 UTC||Need Help??|
lestrrat has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
This is question is just burning me up. I want to use XML, and I also want to be able to use XSLT for XML transformation. But just WHICH XML/XSLT Perl interface is most preferred? I have so far used XML::DOM and XML::LibXML/XML::LibXSLT and I can't decide, because neither of these seems to be the "definitive" solution for several reasons:
On one hand, to my perception XML::DOM seems to be most widely used. XML::DOM seems to follow the DOM specification, and I feel it's pretty good. But what about doing XSLT transformation? I see that there's XML::XSLT, but that doesn't seem to be quite feature-complete. Hmmm....
Then there's LibXML. I love the fact that it's very fast. XSLT works like magic using LibXSLT. But the interface seems to be a little bit off from what I read on the DOM specifications. Hmmm....
And I'm sure there are other ones out there. But I just can't seem to find THE one to use. So which one(s) do other monks use? Why do you use it over others? Is there things that one set of interfaces can do that the others can't?
Any pointers are appreciated...
(I apologize in advance if I have made any incorrect statements about the features of the afore mentioned modules...)
