       XML::Writer::String - Capture output from XML::Writer.


         use XML::Writer;
         use XML::Writer::String;

         my $s = XML::Writer::String->new();
         my $writer = new XML::Writer( OUTPUT => $s );


         print $s->value();


       This module implements a bare-bones class specifically for the purpose of capturing data
       from the XML::Writer module.  XML::Writer expects an IO::Handle object and writes XML data
       to the specified object (or STDOUT) via it's print() method.  This module simulates such
       an object for the specific purpose of providing the required print() method.

       It is recommended that $writer->end() is called prior to calling $s->value() to check for


       XML::Writer::String provides three methods, "new()", "print()" and "value()":

       "$s = XML::Writer::String-"new([list]);>
           new() returns a new String handle.

       "$count = $s-"print([list]);>
           print() appends concatenated list data and returns number of items in list.

       "$val = $s-"value([list]);>
           value() returns the current content of the object as a scalar.  It can also be used to
           initialize/overwrite the current content with concatenated list data.


       This module is designed for the specific purpose of capturing the output of XML::Writer
       objects, as described in this document.  It does not inherit form IO::Handle.  For an
       alternative solution look at IO::Scalar, IO::Lines, IO::String or Tie::Handle::Scalar.
