( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Dear Monks,
I am tasked to convert CSV to XML and have turned to the not-updated-in-15-years XML::CSV. It has a number of issues - lack on support for accented characters and poor error handling are some of them. What would you recommend for converting CSV into a custom, possibly rather complex XML format?
use warnings; use strict; use Test::More; use File::Spec::Functions; use XML::XPath; use lib catdir qw ( lib ); plan tests => 8; use_ok q{XML::CSV}; my $base = q{input}; my $csvfile = catdir q(csv), qq{$base.txt}; my $xmlfile = catdir q(xml), qq{$base.xml}; my $default_obj_xs = Text::CSV_XS->new({sep_char => ",", quote_char => + '"', encoding => "utf8"}); my $csv_obj = XML::CSV->new( { csv_xs => $default_obj_xs, error_out => + 1 }); # convert csv to xml, print to file my @arr_of_headings = map { "Col$_" } (1..9); $csv_obj->{column_headings} = \@arr_of_headings; $csv_obj->parse_doc($csvfile); $csv_obj->declare_xml({version => '1.0', encoding => 'UTF-8', standalo +ne => 'yes'}); $csv_obj->print_xml($xmlfile, {format => " ", file_tag => "Import", re +cord_tag => "Row"}); # test xml output my $xp = XML::XPath->new(filename => $xmlfile); my @nodes = $xp->findnodes(q{/Import/record}); cmp_ok(scalar(@nodes), q[==], 3, q[We have 3 nodes]); @nodes = $xp->findnodes(q{/Import/record[1]/Col2}); cmp_ok(scalar(@nodes), q[==], 1, q[We have 1 match on line 1]); ok(exists($nodes[0])); cmp_ok($nodes[0]->string_value(), q{eq}, q{AB12345}); @nodes = $xp->findnodes(q{/Import/record[3]/Col2}); cmp_ok(scalar(@nodes), q[==], 1, q[We have 1 match on line 3]); ok(exists($nodes[0])); cmp_ok($nodes[0]->string_value(), q{eq}, q{EF12345}); __END__ C:\IT\Temp\>prove t\02_poc.t t\02_poc.t .. 1/8 # Failed test at t\02_poc.t line 40. # got: '' # expected: 'EF12345' # Looks like you failed 1 test of 8. t\02_poc.t ..
