NAME ^

Element - an <element>

API ^

new ( name, prefix )

Create a new Element node with name "name" and prefix "prefix". The name be "prefix:local" if prefix is defined. I know that sounds wierd, but it works ;-)

getName

Returns the name (including "prefix:" if defined) of this element.

getLocalName

Returns just the local part of the name (the bit after "prefix:").

getChildNodes

Returns the children of this element. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref.

getChildNode ( pos )

Returns the child at position pos.

appendChild ( childnode )

Appends the child node to the list of current child nodes.

getAttribute ( name )

Returns the attribute node with key name.

getAttributes / getAttributeNodes

Returns the attribute nodes. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref.

appendAttribute ( attrib_node)

Appends the attribute node to the list of attributes (XML::XPath stores attributes in order).

getNamespace ( prefix )

Returns the namespace node by the given prefix

getNamespaces / getNamespaceNodes

Returns the namespace nodes. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref.

appendNamespace ( ns_node )

Appends the namespace node to the list of namespaces.

getPrefix

Returns the prefix of this element

getExpandedName

Returns the expanded name of this element (not yet implemented right).

string_value

For elements, the string_value is the concatenation of all string_values of all text-descendants of the element node in document order.

toString ( [ norecurse ] )

Output (and all children) the node to a string. Doesn't process children if the norecurse option is a true value.
