Lire::ReportParser::HTMLDocBookFormatter(3) Lire::ReportParser subclass


To format DocBook:

use Lire::ReportParser::HTMLDocBookFormatter qw/dbk2html/;
my $txt = dbk2html( "<para>Test</para>" );

In XML Report processors :

    package MyParser;
    use base qw/ Lire::ReportParser::HTMLDocBookFormatter Lire::ReportParser /;
    sub new {
        my $self = shift->SUPER::new( @_ );
        $self->init_docbook_formatter( @_ );
        return $self;
    sub handle_description {
        my ( $self, $desc ) = @_;
        print $desc;


Lire::ReportParser::HTMLDocBookFormatter is the counterpart to Lire::ReportParser::AsciiDocBookFormatter for the HTML output format. Please read its documentation to learn how to use this class. Their use is exactly the same.

dbk2html( $docbook_str, [$columns], [$xhtml] )

Returns an HTML version of the DocBook XML fragment $docbook_str. The "columns" parameter sets the number of columns in which the DocBook HTML text should be formatted. The "xhtml" parameter defines whether the generated code will be XHTML-compliant; the default is yes.

This method will die() in case of error.
