XML::PatAct::MatchName(3) A pattern module for matching element names


use XML::PatAct::MatchName;
my $matcher = XML::PatAct::MatchName->new();
my $patterns = [ 'foo' => ACTION,
'bar/foo' => ACTION,
... ];


XML::PatAct::MatchName is a pattern module for use with PatAct drivers for applying pattern-action lists to XML parses or trees. XML::PatAct::MatchName is a simple pattern module that uses just element names to match on. If multiple names are supplied separated by `"/"' characters, then all of the parent element names must match as well.

The order of patterns in the list is not significant. XML::PatAct::MatchName will use the most specific match. Using the synopsis above as an example, if you have an element `"foo"', `"bar/foo"' will match if `"foo"' is in an element `"bar"', otherwise just the pattern with `"foo"' will match.
