       SVG - Perl extension for generating Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) documents

       Version 2.44, 08  April, 2008

       Refer to SVG::Manual for the complete manual


       SVG is a 100% Perl module which generates a nested data structure containing the DOM
       representation of an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) image. Using SVG, you can generate SVG
       objects, embed other SVG instances into it, access the DOM object, create and access
       javascript, and generate SMIL animation content.

       Refer to SVG::Manual for the complete manual.

       SVG provides both explicit and generic element constructor methods. Explicit generators
       are generally (with a few exceptions) named for the element they generate. If a tag method
       is required for a tag containing hyphens, the method name replaces the hyphen with an
       underscore. ie: to generate tag <column-heading id="new"> you would use method

       All element constructors take a hash of element attributes and options; element attributes
       such as 'id' or 'border' are passed by name, while options for the method (such as the
       type of an element that supports multiple alternate forms) are passed preceded by a
       hyphen, e.g '-type'. Both types may be freely intermixed; see the "fe" method and code
       examples througout the documentation for more examples.

   new (constructor)
       $svg = SVG->new(%attributes)

       Creates a new SVG object. Attributes of the document SVG element be passed as an optional
       list of key value pairs. Additionally, SVG options (prefixed with a hyphen) may be set on
       a per object basis:


           my $svg1=new SVG;

           my $svg2=new SVG(id => 'document_element');

           my $svg3=new SVG(
               -printerror => 1,
               -raiseerror => 0,
               -indent     => '  ',
               -elsep      => "\n",  # element line (vertical) separator
               -docroot    => 'svg', # default document root element (SVG specification assumes svg). Defaults to 'svg' if undefined
               -xml_xlink  => '', # required by Mozilla's embedded SVG engine
               -sysid      => 'abc', # optional system identifier
               -pubid      => "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN", # public identifier default value is "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN" if undefined
               -namespace  => 'mysvg',
               -inline     => 1
               id          => 'document_element',
               width       => 300,
               height      => 200,

       Default SVG options may also be set in the import list. See "EXPORTS" above for more on
       the available options.

       Furthermore, the following options:

           -pubid (formerly -identifier)
           -sysid (standalone)

       may also be set in xmlify, overriding any corresponding values set in the SVG->new

   xmlify  (alias: to_xml render serialize serialise )
       $string = $svg->xmlify(%attributes);

       Returns xml representation of svg document.

       XML Declaration

           Name               Default Value
           -version           '1.0'
           -encoding          'UTF-8'
           -standalone        'yes'
           -namespace         'svg' - namespace prefix for elements.
                                      Can also be used in any element method to over-ride
                                      the current namespace prefix. Make sure to have
                                      declared the prefix before using it.
           -inline            '0' - If '1', then this is an inline document.
           -pubid             '-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN';
           -sysid             ''

   perlify ()
       return the perl code which generates the SVG document as it currently exists.

   toperl ()
       Alias for method perlify()
