XML::XPathEngine::Literal - Simple string values.
In XPath terms a Literal is what we know as a string.
new($string) Create a new Literal object with the value in $string. Note that " and ' will be converted to " and ' respectively. That is not part of the XPath specification, but I consider it useful. Note though that you have to go to extraordinary lengths in an XML template file (be it XSLT or whatever) to make use of this: <xsl:value-of select=""I'm feeling &quot;sad&quot;""/> Which produces a Literal of: I'm feeling "sad" value() Also overloaded as stringification, simply returns the literal string value. cmp($literal) Returns the equivalent of perl's cmp operator against the given $literal.
