in reply to XML parsing with XML::Rules

G'day mcoblentz,

It would appear that's poorly documented and read_chunk_of_data() is either pseudocode or a function you're supposed to write yourself.

I haven't used this module previously; however, something like this seems to be the intent:

$ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -e ' use XML::Rules; use Data::Dumper; my @xml = qw{<some_tag> some content </some_tag>}; my $parser = XML::Rules::->new( rules => [ _default => sub {$_[0] => $_[1]->{_content}} ] ); for (@xml) { $parser->parse_chunk($_); } my $data = $parser->last_chunk(); print Dumper $data; ' $VAR1 = { 'some_tag' => 'somecontent' };

Someone who's actually used the module before may have a better answer.

Update: Minor text change: s/write it yourself/write yourself/

    or a function you're supposed to write it yourself.

    XML::Rules does show read_chunk_of_data() in documentation for parse_chunk()

      I've got no idea why you wrote that. There is no suggestion by anyone that it doesn't appear in the documentation. Perhaps you could elaborate on what you meant.

      I have changed "write it yourself" to "write yourself" which is what I originally intended; however, I can't see that either form changes the meaning with respect to what appears in the documentation.

        I don't remember :) I guess it seems obvious its a function you're supposed to write yourself -- so yeah, what you said is pretty much spot on , except the appear that's poorly documented portion, because that seems like pretty good documentation to me
