NAME ^

XML::CommonNS - A list of commonly used namespaces

SYNOPSIS ^

        # import $RDF, $RDFS, $OWL, $DC
        use XML::CommonNS qw(RDF RDFS OWL DC);
        
        my %CONFIG = (
            Namespaces    => {              
                rdf  => "$RDF",
                rdfs => "$RDFS",
                owl  => "$OWL",
                foaf => "$FOAF",
            },
            ExpandQNames => 1,
        );
        
        # or the uri() method
        
        my $foaf = XML::CommonNS->uri('FOAF');

DESCRIPTION All you need do to use this module is import the namespaces you ^

want from the list below. All of those will then become available to you. They are XML::NamespaceFactory object and can thus be used both as simple strings and as XML::NamespaceFactory objects. See XML::NamespaceFactory for how that may help you.

I hesitated for a while before releasing this module. As a directory of namespaces that can't (and almost certainly shouldn't) be exhaustive, it implies editorial decisions and I wasn't certain it was CPAN worthy. However, after getting really tired of tracking down namespaces in every single small XML muning script I made, I wrote it for myself. After a while using it, I don't see why others wouldn't find it useful as well.

NAMESPACES ^

The currently available namespaces are listed below. Should you consider one worthy of addition (it needs to be common enough) please simply notify me. Those marked with a start are subject to change. I WILL change them when the corresponding specification changes.
