NAME ^

XML::Compile::C14N - XML Canonicalization

SYNOPSIS ^

 my $schema = XML::Compile::Cache->new(...);
 my $c14n   = XML::Compile::C14N->new(schema => $schema);

DESCRIPTION ^

XML canonicalization is used to enforce an explicit formatting style on de XML documents. It is required to have a reproducable output when, for instance, digital signatures gets applied to parts of the document.

C14N currently has seen three versions: 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0. Versions 1.* need [C14N-EXC] version 1.0. There is no support for version 2.0 in XML::LibXML yet, so also not provided by this module.

METHODS ^

Constructors

XML::Compile::C14N->new(OPTIONS)
 -Option --Default
  schema   undef
  version  '1.1'
schema => XML::Compile::Cache object

Add the C14N extension information to the provided schema. If not used, you have to call loadSchemas() before compiling readers and writers.

version => STRING

Explicitly state which version C14N needs to be used. C14N2 is not yet supported.

Attributes

$obj->schema()
$obj->version()

Returns the version number.

Handling

$obj->normalize(TYPE, NODE, OPTIONS)

The TYPE is one of the C14* constants defined in XML::Compile::C14N::Util. The NODE is an XML::LibXML::Element. Returned is a normalized byte-sequence, for instance to be signed.

 -Option     --Default
  context      <created from NODE if needed>
  prefix_list  []
  xpath        undef
context => XML::LibXML::XPathContext object
prefix_list => ARRAY

Then prefixes which are to be included in normalization, only used in excludeNamespaces (EXC) normalizations.

xpath => EXPRESSION

Only normalize a subset of the document.

Internals

$obj->loadSchemas(SCHEMA)

Load the C14N schema to the global SCHEMA, which must extend XML::Compile::Cache.

This method will be called when you provide a value for new(schema). Otherwise, you need to call this when the global SCHEMA is known in your program.
