Check out XML::LibXML::SAX::Builder. It builds a DOM from a SAX stream. From there you can use XPath on the data set, and even serialise back to SAX when you're done if you want to. There's nothing in the SAX spec that says you shouldn't be able to use XPath on the data, or shouldn't build a DOM with it. SAX just happens to be the universal plumbing.

Also you might want to check out Barrie Slaymaker's XML::Filter::Dispatcher, which allows you attach to a SAX pipeline and dispatch to methods/functions based on XPath's specified in the constructor. Rather like XML::Twig, but better ;-)

I've been meaning to write a node about just how great SAX is for a while now, maybe it's time I just did it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
