[NOTE: I already announced this on the perl-xml mailing list, but I
realised that I should do so here as well.]
I needed this, so I wrote it this morning:
(I've also sent an upload to CPAN, but it might take a while to
appear). Here's a very simple synopsis:
my $output = new IO::File(">output.xml");
my $writer = new XML::Writer($output);
"class" => "simple");
(You can also leave out the $output argument if you want to go
straight to STDOUT.)
By default, the module does a fair bit of well-formedness checking to
help you catch bugs in your Perl programs -- you can turn the checking
off for production use if you like to live on the wild side.
Here are the errors that the module catches so far:
- Lack of a (top-level) document element, or multiple document elements.
- Unclosed start tags.
- Misplaced delimiters in the contents of processing instructions or
- Misplaced or duplicate XML declaration(s).
- Misplaced or duplicate DOCTYPE declaration(s).
- Mismatch between the document type name in the DOCTYPE declaration and
the name of the document element.
- Mismatched start and end tags.
- Attempts to insert character data outside the document element.
- Duplicate attributes with the same name.
