NAME

       XML::Doctype::AttDef - A class representing a definition in an <!ATTLIST> tag

SYNOPSIS

          $attr = $elt->attribute( $name ) ;
          $attr->name ;

DESCRIPTION

       This module is used to represent <!ELEMENT> tags in an XML::Doctype object.  It contains
       <!ATTLIST> tags as well.

STATUS

       This module is alpha code.  It's developed enough to support XML::ValidWriter, but need a
       lot of work.  Some big things that are lacking are:

METHODS

       new
              $dtd = XML::Doctype::AttDef->new( $name, $type, $default ) ;

       default
              ( $spec, $value ) = $attr->default ;
              $attr->default( '#REQUIRED' ) ;
              $attr->default( '#IMPLIED' ) ;
              $attr->default( '', 'foo' ) ;
              $attr->default( '#FIXED', 'foo' ) ;

           Sets/gets the default value.  This is a

       quant
              $attdef->quant( $q ) ;
              $q = $attdef->quant ;

           Sets/gets the attribute quantifier: '#REQUIRED', '#FIXED', '#IMPLIED', or ''.

       name
              $attdef->name( $name ) ;
              $name = $attdef->name ;

           Sets/gets this attribute name.  Don't change the name while an attribute is in an
           element's attlist, since it will then be filed under the wrong name.

       default_on_write
              $attdef->default_on_write( $value ) ;
              $value = $attdef->default_on_write ;

              $attdef->default_on_write( $attdef->default ) ;

           Sets/gets the value which is automatically output for this attribute if none is
           supplied to $writer->startTag.  This is typically used to set a document-wide default
           for #REQUIRED attributes (and perhaps plain attributes) so that the attribute is
           treated like a #FIXED tag and emitted with a fixed value.

           The default_on_write does not need to be the same as the default unless the quantifier
           is #FIXED.

SUBCLASSING

       This object uses the fields pragma, so you should use base and fields for any subclasses.
