( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

my application recives XML-documents that contain a declaration (I hope that is the proper term), i.e. they start with something like

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
I now need to get to the encoding-value (not to read the XML but to generate a response with the same encoding).

I parse the XML with XML::LibXML and access the content with XPath (using XML::LibXML::XPathContext) but I cannot find a way to access the declaration.

According to "XML in a Nutshell" the declaration is not addressable via XPath anyway, so I wonder how to do that (apart from the obious regex-hack).

Many thanks!

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.
