NAME

XML::LibXML::Namespace - XML::LibXML Namespace Implementation

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

Namespace nodes are returned by both ->findnodes('namespace::foo') or by ->getNamespaces().

The namespace node API is not part of any current DOM API, and so it is quite minimal. It should be noted that namespace nodes are not a sub class of XML::LibXML::Node, however Namespace nodes act a lot like attribute nodes, and similarly named methods will return what you would expect if you treated the namespace node as an attribute. Note that in order to fix several inconsistencies between the API and the documentation, the behavior of some functions have been changed in 1.64.

METHODS

new

Creates a new Namespace node. Note that this is not a 'node' as an attribute or an element node. Therefore you can't do call all XML::LibXML::Node Functions. All functions available for this node are listed below.

Optionally you can pass the prefix to the namespace constructor. If this second parameter is omitted you will create a so called default namespace. Note, the newly created namespace is not bound to any document or node, therefore you should not expect it to be available in an existing document.

:

declaredURI
Returns the URI for this namespace.:
declaredPrefix
Returns the prefix for this namespace.:
nodeName

Returns ``xmlns:prefix'', where prefix is the prefix for this namespace.

:

name

Alias for nodeName()

:

getLocalName

Returns the local name of this node as if it were an attribute, that is, the prefix associated with the namespace.

:

getData

Returns the URI of the namespace, i.e. the value of this node as if it were an attribute.

:

getValue

Alias for getData()

:

value

Alias for getData()

:

getNamespaceURI

Returns the string ``http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/

:

getPrefix

Returns the string ``xmlns''

:

unique_key

This method returns a key guaranteed to be unique for this namespace, and to always be the same value for this namespace. Two namespace objects return the same key if and only if they have the same prefix and the same URI. The returned key value is useful as a key in hashes.
