( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm editing an existing XML file by cutting children and inserting elements into a twig. The orginal XML is formatted as follows:
<PrimaryServers> <Server Name="Old_1"/> <Server Name="Old_2"/> </PrimaryServers>
That particular section is edited with the following:
my $ps = $sc->first_child('PrimaryServers'); $ps->cut_children; $ps->insert_new_elt("Server")->set_att('Name', "New_1"); $ps->insert_new_elt("Server")->set_att('Name', "New_2");
Everything works as expected. However, when dumping the XML to a file with $root->print() that section appears as:
<PrimaryServers><Server Name="New_2"/><Server Name="New_1"/></PrimaryS +ervers>
How do I define a formating style on those inserted children so that the final output will appear as:
<PrimaryServers> <Server Name="New_2"/> <Server Name="New_1"/> </PrimaryServers>
I've tried setting pretty_print to 'indented' as well as the other choices but none see to work. The rest of the XML retains the original formatting, it's just the twig that I edited that is lacking the formatting.

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.
