NAME ^

XML::Handler::2Simple - SAX => XML::Simple handler

SYNOPSIS ^

    my $h = XML::Handler::2Simple->new(
        %xml_simple_options,
        DataHandler => \&sub_to_handle_result, ## optional
    );

    my $p = XML::SAX::ParserFactory->parser( Handler => $h );

    my $data_struct = $p->parse_uri( $file );

DESCRIPTION ^

This module accepts a SAX stream and converts it in to a Perl data structure using XML::Simple. The resulting object can be passed to a subroutine and is returned after the parse.

For example, here's a SAX machine that outputs all of the records in a record oriented XML file:

    use XML::Handler::2Simple;
    use XML::SAX::Machines qw( ByRecord );

    use IO::Handle;   ## Needed because LibXML uses it without loading it
    use Data::Dumper;

    $Data::Dumper::Indent    = 1;  ## Clean up Data::Dumper's output a wee bit
    $Data::Dumper::Terse     = 1;
    $Data::Dumper::Quotekeys = 1;

    ByRecord(
        XML::Handler::2Simple->new(
            DataHandler => sub {
                warn Dumper( $_[1] );
            },
        )
    )->parse_file( \*STDIN );
