AnyEvent::XMPP::Node - XML node tree helper for the parser.
use AnyEvent::XMPP::Node; ...
This class represens a XML node. AnyEvent::XMPP should usually not require messing with the parse tree, but sometimes it is neccessary.
If you experience any need for messing with these and feel AnyEvent::XMPP should rather take care of it drop me a mail, feature request or most preferably a patch!
Every AnyEvent::XMPP::Node has a namespace, attributes, text and child nodes.
You can access these with the following methods:
Creates a new AnyEvent::XMPP::Node object with the node tag name
$el in the namespace URI
$ns and the attributes
$parser must be the instance of
AnyEvent::XMPP::Parser which generated this node.
The tag name of this node.
Returns the namespace URI of this node.
Returns true whether the current element matches the tag name
$name in the namespaces pointed at by
You can either pass an alias that was defined in AnyEvent::XMPP::Namespaces or pass an namespace URI in
$namespace_or_alias. If no alias with the name
$namespace_or_alias was found in AnyEvent::XMPP::Namespaces it will be interpreted as namespace URI.
The first argument to eq can also be another AnyEvent::XMPP::Node instance.
This method return true if the namespace of this instance of AnyEvent::XMPP::Node matches the namespace described by
$namespace_or_alias or the namespace of the
$node which has to be another AnyEvent::XMPP::Node instance.
eq for the meaning of
Returns the contents of the
Adds a sub-node to the current node.
Returns a list of sub nodes.
Adds character data to the current node.
Returns the text for this node.
This method does a recursive descent through the sub-nodes and fetches all nodes that match the last element of
The elements of
@path consist of a array reference to an array with two elements: the namespace key known by the
$parser and the tagname we search for.
This writes the current node out to the AnyEvent::XMPP::Writer object in
This method returns the original character representation of this XML element (and it's children nodes). Please note that the string is a unicode string, meaning: to get octets use:
my $octets = encode ('UTF-8', $node->as_string);
Now you can roll stunts like this:
my $libxml = XML::LibXML->new; my $doc = $libxml->parse_string (encode ('UTF-8', $node->as_string ()));
(You can use your favorite XML parser :)
This method is called by the parser to store original strings of this element.
With this you can convert this node to any DOM level 2 structure you want:
my $builder = XML::LibXML::SAX::Builder->new; $node->to_sax_events ($builder); my $dom = $builder->result; print "Canonized: " . $dom->toStringC14N . "\n";
