NAME

       XML::Validate::MSXML - Interface to MSXML validator

SYNOPSIS

         my $validator = new XML::Validate::MSXML(%options);
         if ($doc = $validator->validate($xml)) {
           ... Do stuff with $doc ...
         } else {
           print "Document is invalid\n";
         }

DESCRIPTION

       XML::Validate::MSXML is an interface to Microsoft's MSXML parser (often available in
       Windows environments) which can be used with the XML::Validate module.

METHODS

       new(%options)
           Returns a new XML::Validate::MSXML instance using the specified options. (See OPTIONS
           below.)

       validate($xml)
           Returns true if $xml could be successfully parsed, undef otherwise.

       last_dom()
           Returns the MSXML DOM object of the document last validated.

       last_error()
           Returns the error from the last validate call. This is a hash ref with the following
           fields:

       create_doc_and_cache()
           Internal method for instantiation of MSXML DOMDocument and SchemaCache objects for use
           within the module.

       dependencies_available()
           Internal method to determine that the necessary dependencies are available for
           instantiation of MSXML DOMDocument and SchemaCache objects.

       load_schemas($msxml, $msxmlcache)
           Internal method to perform loading of XML schema(s) into SchemaCache object.

           ·   message

           ·   line

           ·   column

           Note that the error gets cleared at the beginning of each "validate" call.

       version()
           Returns the version of the MSXML component that is installed

OPTIONS

       XML::Validate::MSXML takes the following options:

       strict_validation
           If this boolean value is true, the document will be validated during parsing.
           Otherwise it will only be checked for well-formedness. Defaults to true.

ERROR REPORTING

       When a call to validate fails to parse the document, the error may be retrieved using
       last_error.

       On errors not related to the XML parsing, these methods will throw exceptions.  Wrap calls
       with eval to catch them.

PACKAGE GLOBALS

       $XML::Validate::MSXML::MSXML_VERSION contains the version number of MSXML.

DEPENDENCIES

       Win32::OLE, MSXML 4.0 or 5.0
