NAME

XML::XPathEngine::Literal - Simple string values.

DESCRIPTION

API

Note though that you have to go to extraordinary lengths in an XML template file (be it XSLT or whatever) to make use of this:

Which produces a Literal of:

<H3 CLASS="c1|value()

Also overloaded as stringification, simply returns the literal string value.

cmp($literal)

Returns the equivalent of perl's cmp operator against the given .
