NAME ^

XML::WBXML - Convert between XML and WBXML using libwbxml2

SYNOPSIS ^

  use XML::WBXML;

  $wbxml = XML::WBXML::xml_to_wbxml($xml);
  $xml = XML::WBXML::wbxml_to_xml($wbxml);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is a wrapper around Aymerick Jehanne's libwbxml (or perhaps libwbxml2, I am not sure what the distinction is) library for handling Wireless Binary XML. You must install libwbxml2 prior to installing this module. The library can be found at http://libwbxml.aymerick.com/ (libwbxml2 itself requires the expat library to be installed.)

The module defines two functions: xml_to_wbxml and wbxml_to_xml.

EXPORTS ^

None by default.

EXPORTABLE FUNCTIONS ^

xml_to_wbxml $xml

Given a string containing an XML document, converts it to WBXML (version 1.2). Returns undef on errors.

(As far as I can tell, the only distinction between version 1.2 and version 1.3 of WBXML is the first byte -- 0x03 in 1.3 and 0x02 in 1.2.)

wbxml_to_xml $wbxml

Given a string containing a WBXML document, converts it to XML (without extra whitespace). Returns undef on errors.

DEPENDENCIES ^

libwbxml2, a C compiler, and (transitively) expat.

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^
