NAME ^

MKDoc::XML::Decode - Expands XML entities

SYNOPSIS ^

  use MKDoc::XML::Decode;
  my $decode = new MKDoc::XML::Decode qw/xml xhtml numeric/;

  # $xml is now "Chris' Baloon"
  my $xml = MKDoc::XML::Decode->process ("Chris' Baloon");

SUMMARY ^

MKDoc::XML::Decode is a very simple module with pluggable entity decoding mechanism. At the moment there are three modules:

xml - Decodes ' " > < and & xhtml - Decodes XHTML entities such as é numeric - Decodes numeric entities such as A

That's it.

This module and its counterpart MKDoc::XML::Encode are used by MKDoc::XML::Dumper to XML-encode and XML-decode litterals.

API ^

my $decode_object = new MKDoc::XML::Decode (@modules);

Constructs a new decode object using the modules specified in @modules.

my $decoded = $decode_object->decode ($stuff);

Decodes $stuff and returns it into $decoded.

Any entity which is not recognized will be returned as is but will trigger a warning.
