NAME

       XML::LibXML::XPathExpression - XML::LibXML::XPathExpression - interface to libxml2
       pre-compiled XPath expressions

SYNOPSIS

         use XML::LibXML;
         my $compiled_xpath = XML::LibXML::XPathExpression->new('//foo[@bar="baz"][position()<4]');

         # interface from XML::LibXML::Node

         my $result = $node->find($compiled_xpath);
         my @nodes = $node->findnodes($compiled_xpath);
         my $value = $node->findvalue($compiled_xpath);

         # interface from XML::LibXML::XPathContext

         my $result = $xpc->find($compiled_xpath,$node);
         my @nodes = $xpc->findnodes($compiled_xpath,$node);
         my $value = $xpc->findvalue($compiled_xpath,$node);

         $compiled = XML::LibXML::XPathExpression->new( xpath_string );

DESCRIPTION

       This is a perl interface to libxml2's pre-compiled XPath expressions.  Pre-compiling an
       XPath expression can give in some performance benefit if the same XPath query is evaluated
       many times. "XML::LibXML::XPathExpression" objects can be passed to all "find..."
       functions "XML::LibXML" that expect an XPath expression.

       new()
             $compiled = XML::LibXML::XPathExpression->new( xpath_string );

           The constructor takes an XPath 1.0 expression as a string and returns an object
           representing the pre-compiled expressions (the actual data structure is internal to
           libxml2).
