NAME ^

XML::Essex::Filter::OutputMonitor - Enforce and cajol Essex output

SYNOPSIS ^

    ## Internal use only

DESCRIPTION ^

Used by XML::Generator::Essex and XML::Filter::Essex instances to watch what's emitted downstream so as to capture result codes and notice incomplete documents.

Fills in partially filled end_element events and dies on mismatched end_element events. Fills in missing start_document and end_document events (unless auto_document_events is cleared).

NOTE: This could actually fill in missing end_element events, but I think that would lead to subtle bugs and would not help in many cases. It's safer to leave it out and we can always add this feature in the future, whereas taking it out would be difficult.

Returns a 1 from the end_document if no downstream handler is found.

Methods

reset

Undefines all state variables.

finish

Emits an end_doc if need be.

start_document_seen

Sets/gets whether the start_document event was seen.

end_document_seen

Sets/gets whether the end_document event was seen. Will be set if the downstream filter's end_document() throws an exception.

end_document_result

Sets/gets the result returned by the downstream filter's end_document() event handler. Set to undef if nothing else, for instance if the downstream end_document() throws an exception.

end_document_result_has_been_set

Set if the end_document_result() has been called.

auto_document_events

When set (the default), a start_document will be emitted before the first event unless it is start_document event and an end_document will be emitted after the last event unless an end_document was emitted. When cleared, this automation does not occur. The automatic end_document will not be emitted if an exception is thrown so as not to cause a stateful downstream handler to throw an additional exception.

This does allow well-balanced chunks of XML to be emitted, but there will be start_ and end_document events around them. Clear this member is you don't want to emit them, or if you want to emit them yourself.

This is not affected by reset().
