( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Is there a way to keep XML::Parser from converting numeric entities into UTF8?

Or is there some other parser that will let me do this?

use strict; use XML::Parser; use vars qw($parser); sub handle_start { my $self = shift; my $x = shift; print "<" . $x . '>' ; } sub handle_end { my $self = shift; my $x = shift; print "</" . $x . '>' ; } sub handle_char { my $self = shift; my $x = shift; print $x; } $parser = XML::Parser->new( Handlers => { Start => \&handle_start, End => \&handle_end, Char => \&handle_char } ); $parser->parse(<<XML); <start>&#8211;</start> XML
I would like this program to output

  • 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).
