NAME

XML::SAX::Expat - SAX2 Driver for Expat (XML::Parser)

SYNOPSIS

use XML::SAX::Expat;
use XML::SAX::MyFooHandler;
my $h = XML::SAX::MyFooHandler->new;
my $p = XML::SAX::Expat->new(Handler => $h);
$p->parse_file('/path/to/foo.xml');

DESCRIPTION

This is an implementation of a SAX2 driver sitting on top of Expat (XML::Parser) which Ken MacLeod posted to perl-xml and which I have updated.

It is still incomplete, though most of the basic SAX2 events should be available. The SAX2 spec is currently available from http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/~checkout~/perl-xml/libxml-perl/doc/sax-2.0.html?rev=HEAD&content-type=text/html

A more friendly URL as well as a PODification of the spec are in the works.

METHODS

The methods defined in this class correspond to those listed in the PerlSAX2 specification, available above.

FEATURES AND CAVEATS

MISSING PARTS

XML::Parser has no listed callbacks for the following events, which are therefore not presently generated (ways may be found in the future):

* ignorable_whitespace
* skipped_entity
* start_entity / end_entity
* resolve_entity

Ways of signalling them are welcome. In addition to those, set_document_locator is not yet called.

TODO

- reuse Ken's tests and add more
