NAME ^

XHTML::Instrumented - packages to control XHTML

VERSION ^

Version 0.092

DESCRIPTION ^

This package takes valid XHTML as input and outputs valid XHTML that may be changed in several ways.

SYNOPSIS ^

 use XHTML::Instrumented;

 my $dom = XHTML::Instrumented->new(
    path => '/var/www/html',
    type => 'nl',
    default_type => 'en',
    name => 'index',

    cachepath => '/tmp/the_cache_path/',

 # run time
    replace_name => 'home',

 # compile time

    filter => sub {
        my $tag = shift;
        my $args = shift;
        if (my $path = $args->{href}) {

        }
    },
 };

This will load the file /var/www/html/nl/index.html or if that is not found /var/www/html/en/index.html or an exception will be thrown.

You can also directly input html, although this is mainly used for testing.

 use XHTML::Instrumented;

 my $dom = XHTML::Instrumented->new(
    name => \"<html><head></head><body>hi</body></html>",
 );

You can also directly give a complete filename.

 use XHTML::Instrumented;

 my $dom = XHTML::Instrumented->new(
    filename => '/var/www/html/en/index.html',
 );

API ^

Constructor

new

The new() constructor method instantiates a new XHTML::Intrumented object. The template is either compiled or loaded as well.

The parameters to the constructor are describe in more detail in the descriptions of the methods with the same name path() name() type() default_type() extension() filename() cachepath() replace_name()

There is also a filter parameter: it is a call-back that allows the arguments to tags to be modified at compile time.

Get a XHTML::Instrumented object.

Accessor Methods

filename

This the complete name (path and filename) of the file that was compiled to create the object. If the input was not from a file this will be undefined. This is either build up from the path, type or default_type, name and extension values or is set directly by the constructor.

path

This is the base path to the input file. It is set by an argument to the constructor.

name

This is the base name of the input file. It is set by an argument to the constructor.

type

This is the default type of the input file. This is really just an extra element to the path. It is set by an argument to the constructor.

default_type

If the file is not found using the type then this is tried.

extension

This is the extension to the file. It defaults to ".html' and can be set by the constructor.

cachepath

This is the base directory where the cache file will be stored. It is set by an argument to the constructor.

cachefilename

This is the full name of the cache file.

replace_name

This is the default name of the file that will be used by the :replace operator.

Methods

output

This returns the modified xhtml.

head

This returns the html between the Head tags!

get_form

This returns a form object.

loop()

Get a loop control object.

   headers => [array of headers]
   data => [arrays of data]
   default => default value for any undefined data
   inclusive => include the tag that started the loop

inclusive is normally controlled in the template.

replace

This return a general control object. I can control 4 actions:

replace the arguments to a tag.
replace the content of a tag.
remove the tag it self.
args

args is a helper function. It is the same as:

 replace(args => { @_ });

Functions

get_tag('tag')

Return a list of XHTML::Intramented::Entry objects that have type 'tag';

Functions

Both of these functions are used internally by the XHTML::Instrumented and are only listed here for completeness.

parse(input)

This causes the input to be parsed.

if input is a string it is assumed to be a filename. If input is a SCALAR is is treated as HTML;

instrument()

This function take the template and the control structure and returns a block of XHTML.
