Parsing XML

on Jun 23, 2000 at 15:03 UTC ( #19564=snippet: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Description:

Here's a short demo of parsing XML using the Tree mode of XML::Parser. It works on any well-formed XML document and prints out a representation of the documents structure, e.g. given the file

<FORECAST> <OUTLOOK> Partly Cloudy </OUTLOOK> <TEMPERATURE TYPE="MAX" DEGREES="C">12</TEMPERATURE> <TEMPERATURE TYPE="MIN" DEGREES="C">6</TEMPERATURE> </FORECAST>

it will display:

FORECAST [] OUTLOOK [] Partly Cloudy TEMPERATURE [DEGREES: C, TYPE: MAX] 12 TEMPERATURE [DEGREES: C, TYPE: MIN] 6
use strict; 
use XML::Parser; 
 
my $p = XML::Parser->new(Style => 'Tree'); 
 
my $doc = $p->parsefile(shift); 
 
my $level = 0; 
 
process_node(@$doc); 
 
sub process_node { 
  my ($type, $content) = @_; 
 
  my $ind = ' ' x $level; 
 
  if ($type) { 
    my $attrs = shift @$content; 
 
    print $ind, $type, ' ['; 
    print join(', ', map { "$_: $attrs->{$_}" } keys %{$attrs}); 
    print "]\n"; 
 
    ++$level; 
    while (my @node = splice(@$content, 0, 2)) { 
      process_node(@node); 
    } 
    --$level; 
  } else { 
    $content =~ s/\n/ /; 
    $content =~ s/^\s+//; 
    $content =~ s/\s+$//; 
    print $ind, $content, "\n";
  }
}
