NAME

       XML::Encoding - A perl module for parsing XML encoding maps.

SYNOPSIS

         use XML::Encoding;
         my $em_parser = new XML::Encoding(ErrorContext  => 2,
                                           ExpatRequired => 1,
                                           PushPrefixFcn => \&push_prefix,
                                           PopPrefixFcn  => \&pop_prefix,
                                           RangeSetFcn   => \&range_set);

         my $encmap_name = $em_parser->parsefile($ARGV[0]);

DESCRIPTION

       This module, which is built as a subclass of XML::Parser, provides a parser for encoding
       map files, which are XML files. The file maps/encmap.dtd in the distribution describes the
       structure of these files. Calling a parse method returns the name of the encoding map
       (obtained from the name attribute of the root element). The contents of the map are
       processed through the callback functions push_prefix, pop_prefix, and range_set.

METHODS

       This module provides no additional methods to those provided by XML::Parser, but it does
       take the following additional options.

       ·   ExpatRequired

           When this has a true value, then an error occurs unless the encmap "expat" attribute
           is set to "yes". Whether or not the ExpatRequired option is given, the parser enters
           expat mode if this attribute is set. In expat mode, the parser checks if the encoding
           violates expat restrictions.

       ·   PushPrefixFcn

           The corresponding value should be a code reference to be called when a prefix element
           starts. The single argument to the callback is an integer which is the byte value of
           the prefix. An undef value should be returned if successful. If in expat mode, a
           defined value causes an error and is used as the message string.

       ·   PopPrefixFcn

           The corresponding value should be a code reference to be called when a prefix element
           ends. No arguments are passed to this function. An undef value should be returned if
           successful. If in expat mode, a defined value causes an error and is used as the
           message string.

       ·   RangeSetFcn

           The corresponding value should be a code reference to be called when a "range" or "ch"
           element is seen. The 3 arguments passed to this function are: (byte, unicode_scalar,
           length) The byte is the starting byte of a range or the byte being mapped by a "ch"
           element. The unicode_scalar is the Unicode value that this byte (with the current
           prefix) maps to. The length of the range is the last argument.  This will be 1 for the
           "ch" element. An undef value should be returned if successful. If in expat mode, a
           defined value causes an error and is used as the message string.
