NAME

XML::Grove::PerlSAX - an PerlSAX event interface for XML objects  

SYNOPSIS

 use XML::Grove::PerlSAX;

 $parser = XML::Grove::PerlSAX->new( [OPTIONS] );
 $result = $parser->parse( [OPTIONS] );

 # or
 $result = $xml_object->parse( [OPTIONS] );

 

DESCRIPTION

"XML::Grove::PerlSAX" is a PerlSAX parser that generates PerlSAX events from XML::Grove objects. This man page summarizes the specific options, handlers, and properties supported by "XML::Grove::PerlSAX"; please refer to the PerlSAX standard in `"PerlSAX.pod"' for general usage information.  

METHODS

new
Creates a new parser object. Default options for parsing, described below, are passed as key-value pairs or as a single hash. Options may be changed directly in the parser object unless stated otherwise. Options passed to `"parse()"' override the default options in the parser object for the duration of the parse.
parse
Parses a document. Options, described below, are passed as key-value pairs or as a single hash. Options passed to `"parse()"' override default options in the parser object.
 

OPTIONS

The following options are supported by "XML::Grove::PerlSAX":

 Handler          default handler to receive events
 DocumentHandler  handler to receive document events
 Source           hash containing the input source for parsing

If no handlers are provided then all events will be silently ignored.

If a single grove argument is passed to the `"parse()"' method, it is treated as if a `"Source"' option was given with a `"Grove"' parameter.

The `"Source"' hash may contain the following parameters:

 Grove            The grove object used to generate parse events..

 

HANDLERS

The following events are generated by "XML::Grove::PerlSAX". XML::Grove::PerlSAX passes the corresponding grove object as it's parameter so the properties passed to the handler are those that were used to create or were assigned to the grove. Please see the docs for the parser used to create the grove for a list of properties that were provided.  

DocumentHandler methods

start_document
Receive notification of the beginning of a document. This is called from the XML::Grove::Document object before processing any document content.
end_document
Receive notification of the end of a document. This is called from the XML::Grove::Document object after processing all document content.
start_element
Receive notification of the beginning of an element. This is called from the XML::Grove::Element object before processing any element content.
end_element
Receive notification of the end of an element. This is called from the XML::Grove::Element object after processing all element content.
characters
Receive notification of character data. This is called from the XML::Grove::Characters object.
processing_instruction
Receive notification of a processing instruction. This is called from the XML::Grove::PI object.
comment
Receive notification of a comment. This is called from the XML::Grove::Comment object.
