( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi All,
I have a strange problem. Please inspect the following code:
use XML::Twig::XPath; my $t = XML::Twig->new( twig_roots => { 'BalancerStatus/WebServer/OverallConnectio +nPoolStatus' => \&section, }); $t->parsefile( 'localhost.xml'); # sub section { my ($t, $section) = @_; print $section->get_xpath( q{//OverallConnectionPoolStatus/FlowRat +er[Name='Total.IncomingReq']} ); $t->purge; }
When I run it on an xml file I receive:
error in xpath expression //OverallConnectionPoolStatus/FlowRater[Name= ...
I decided to check this exact expression in the XML::XPath itself, and there, I have no errors, I even get a desired result! I used the following code:
use XML::XPath; use XML::XPath::XMLParser; my $xp = XML::XPath->new(filename => 'chunk.xml'); my $nodeset = $xp->find( q{//OverallConnectionPoolStatus/FlowRater +[Name='Total.IncomingReq']} ); # find all paragraphs foreach my $node ($nodeset->get_nodelist) { print "FOUND\n\n", XML::XPath::XMLParser::as_string($node), "\n\n"; }
Strange! Can someone help ?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
