Monks I'm using XML::Smart and running into some problems if there a special characters in the XML document:
If i create an XML::Smart object that encapsulates an XML document which contains special characters like "ä" or "ü"
the function data() uses Base64 encoding but i don't want that. So i decided to use the function with the argument "decode => 1".
After that change everthing works fine unless there are special XML characters like "<", ">" or "&" inside an XML element .
I guess that the call of data(decode => 1) results in encoding "&" to "&" for instance. Is it possible to avoid that behaviour?
I used the function set_binary('FALSE') but somehow it didn't work:
my $log = `svn log http://... --xml --revision 123`;
my $test = XML::Smart->new($log);
I'm using version 1.78 of the module.
I have tried to contact the author via mail using the e-mail address which can be found on the FAQ of XML::Smart. The E-Mail address doesn't exist anymore.
Many thanks in advance.
