    # or
    $map->add(
        WWW::Sitemap::XML::URL->new(
            loc => 'http://mywebsite.com/',
            lastmod => '2010-11-22',

    # read URLs from existing sitemap.xml file
    my @urls = $map->read( 'sitemap.xml' );

    # load urls from existing sitemap.xml file
    $map->load( 'sitemap.xml' );

    # get XML::LibXML object
    my $xml = $map->as_xml;

    print $xml->toString(1);

    # write to file
    $map->write( 'sitemap.xml', my $pretty_print = 1 );

    # write compressed
    $map->write( 'sitemap.xml.gz' );

DESCRIPTION ^

Read and write sitemap XML files as defined at http://www.sitemaps.org/.

METHODS ^

add($url|%attrs)

    $map->add(
        WWW::Sitemap::XML::URL->new(
            loc => 'http://mywebsite.com/',
            lastmod => '2010-11-22',
            changefreq => 'monthly',
            priority => 1.0,
        )
    );

Add the $url object representing single page in the sitemap.

Accepts blessed objects implementing WWW::Sitemap::XML::URL::Interface.

Otherwise the arguments %attrs are passed as-is to create new WWW::Sitemap::XML::URL object.

    $map->add(
        loc => 'http://mywebsite.com/',
        lastmod => '2010-11-22',
        changefreq => 'monthly',
        priority => 1.0,
    );

    # single url argument
    $map->add( 'http://mywebsite.com/' );

    # is same as
    $map->add( loc => 'http://mywebsite.com/' );

Performs basic validation of URLs added:

urls

    my @urls = $map->urls;

Returns a list of all URL objects added to sitemap.

load(%sitemap_location)

    $map->load( location => $sitemap_file );

It is a shortcut for:

    $map->add($_) for $map->read( location => $sitemap_file );

Please see "read" for details.

read(%sitemap_location)

    # file or url to sitemap
    my @urls = $map->read( location => $file_or_url );

    # file handle
    my @urls = $map->read( IO => $fh );

    # XML string
    my @urls = $map->read( string => $xml );

Read the sitemap from file, URL, open file handle or string and return the list of WWW::Sitemap::XML::URL objects representing <url> elements.

write($file, $format = 0)

    # write to file
    $map->write( 'sitemap.xml', my $pretty_print = 1);

    # or
    my $fh = IO::File->new();
    $fh->open('sitemap.xml', 'w');
    $map->write( $fh, my $pretty_print = 1);
    $cfh->close;

    # write compressed
    $map->write( 'sitemap.xml.gz' );

Write XML sitemap to $file - a file name or IO::Handle object.

If file names ends in .gz then the output file will be compressed by setting compression on XML object - please note that it requires libxml2 to be compiled with zlib support.

Optional $format is passed to toFH or toFile methods (depending on the type of $file, respectively for file handle and file name) as described in XML::LibXML.

as_xml

    my $xml = $map->as_xml;

    # pretty print
    print $xml->toString(1);

    # write compressed
    $xml->setCompression(8);
    $xml->toFile( 'sitemap.xml.gz' );

Returns XML::LibXML::Document object representing the sitemap in XML format.

The <url> elements are built by calling as_xml on all URL objects added into sitemap.
