NAME

Element - an <element>  

API

 

new ( name, prefix )

Create a new Element node with name ``name'' and prefix ``prefix''. The name be ``prefix:local'' if prefix is defined. I know that sounds weird, but it works ;-)  

getName

Returns the name (including ``prefix:'' if defined) of this element.  

getLocalName

Returns just the local part of the name (the bit after ``prefix:'').  

getChildNodes

Returns the children of this element. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref.  

getChildNode ( pos )

Returns the child at position pos.  

appendChild ( childnode )

Appends the child node to the list of current child nodes.  

removeChild ( childnode )

Removes the supplied child node from the list of current child nodes.  

getAttribute ( name )

Returns the attribute node with key name.  

getAttributes / getAttributeNodes

Returns the attribute nodes. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref.  

appendAttribute ( attrib_node)

Appends the attribute node to the list of attributes (XML::XPath stores attributes in order).  

getNamespace ( prefix )

Returns the namespace node by the given prefix  

getNamespaces / getNamespaceNodes

Returns the namespace nodes. In list context returns a list. In scalar context returns an array ref.  

appendNamespace ( ns_node )

Appends the namespace node to the list of namespaces.  

getPrefix

Returns the prefix of this element  

getExpandedName

Returns the expanded name of this element (not yet implemented right).  

string_value

For elements, the string_value is the concatenation of all string_values of all text-descendants of the element node in document order.  

toString ( [ norecurse ] )

Output (and all children) the node to a string. Doesn't process children if the norecurse option is a true value.
