Class derived from Embperl::Syntax to define the syntax for HTML. This class does not add functionalty of it own, it just provides methods add definitions for derived classes to implement their own tags.

Methods ^

Embperl::Syntax::HTML defines the following methods:

Embperl::Syntax::HTML -> new / $self -> new

Create a new syntax class. This method should only be called inside a constructor of a derived class.

AddTag ($tagname, $attrs, $attrsurl, $attrsnoval, $procinfo, $taginfo, $addsess)

Add a new HTML tag.

Processor info. See Embperl::Syntax for a definition of procinfo.


Addtional tag definitions. See Embperl::Syntax for more infos.


If set to 1 session id will be added to attributes passed via $attrsurl. If set to 2 a hidden input tag with the session id will be added.

AddTagInside ($tagname, $attrs, $attrsurl, $attrsnoval, $procinfo)

Same as AddTag, but tag could be also used inside of another tag. (e.g. <sometag <someothertag> > ). This is not HTML or XML compatible, but maybe usefull for implementing tagslibs etc. sometimes.

AddComment ($tagname, $attrs, $attrsurl, $attrsnoval, $procinfo)

Add a new HTML comment. Parameters are the same as for AddTag.

AddTagBlock ($tagname, $attrs, $attrsurl, $attrsnoval, $procinfo)

AddTagWithStart ($tagname, $startname, $attrs, $attrsurl, $attrsnoval, $procinfo)

Add a new HTML tag which is an endtag for another tag. In opposite to AddTagBlock the end tag can, but need not exists in the source. Parameters are the same as for AddTag. Addtionaly the name of the starttag must be specified.
