NAME

       XML::Atom::Categories - Atom Category Document object

SYNOPSIS

         use XML::Atom::Service;

         my $category = XML::Atom::Category->new;
         $category->term('joke');
         $category->scheme('http://example.org/extra-cats/');

         my $categories = XML::Atom::Categories->new;
         $categories->add_category($category);

         my $xml = $categories->as_xml;

         # Get a list of the category elements.
         my @category = $categories->category;

DESCRIPTION

       Category Documents contain lists of categories described using the "atom:category" element
       from the Atom Syndication Format [RFC4287].

       The Category Document is defined in "The Atom Publishing Protocol," IETF Internet-Draft.

METHODS

   XML::Atom::Categories->new([ $stream ])
       Creates a new Category Document object, and if $stream is supplied, fills it with the data
       specified by $stream.

       Automatically handles autodiscovery if $stream is a URI (see below).

       Returns the new XML::Atom::Categories object. On failure, returns "undef".

       $stream can be any one of the following:

       ·   Reference to a scalar

           This is treated as the XML body of the Category Document.

       ·   Scalar

           This is treated as the name of a file containing the Category Document XML.

       ·   Filehandle

           This is treated as an open filehandle from which the Category Document XML can be
           read.

       ·   URI object

           This is treated as a URI, and the Category Document XML will be retrieved from the
           URI.

   $categories->categoryk([ $category ])
       If called in scalar context, returns an XML::Atom::Category object corresponding to the
       first "app:category" element found in the Category Document.

       If called in list context, returns a list of XML::Atom::Category objects corresponding to
       all of the "app:category" elements found in the Service Document.

   $service->add_category($category)
       Adds the category $category, which must be an XML::Atom::Category object, to the Service
       Document as a new "app:category" element. For example:

           my $category = XML::Atom::Category->new;
           $category->term('joke');
           $categories->add_category($category);

   $categories->fixed
   $categories->scheme
   $categories->href
   $categories->element_name
   $categories->element_ns
