XML::Literal - Syntax suppor for XML literals
# This is not a source filter: it just augments glob(). use XML::Simple; use XML::Literal \&XMLin; # Simple element my $xml1 = <hr/>; # With variable interpolation my $xml2 = <input value='$ARGV' />; # With an extra pair of angle brackets my $xml3 = < <a href='/'> Some Text </a> >; # With escaped angle brackets my $xml4 = <a href='/'\> Some Text \</a>; # Direct call to the xml-building glob'' constructor my $xml5 = glob' <p><em> Some Text </em></p> '; # This does not look like XML, so it's still shell glob my @files = <*.*>;
This module takes one function at its
use line. Afterwards, all single-line
<...> calls that looks like a XML literal will be processed with that function, instead of the built-in shell
Support for qx<...> overriding for multiline XML literals is planned for Perl 5.10.
