( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This is my first post on Perl Monks. Basically, my problem is with the XML::XSLT perl module. I have the following code:
use strict; use XML::XSLT; print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; open (XSL, "blog.xsl"); my $xslFile = ""; while(<XSL>) { $xslFile .= $_; } close(XSL); #my $xslFile = get("blog.xsl") || die qq(No feed "blog.xsl": $!); my $xslt = XML::XSLT->new ($xslFile); #, warnings => 1, debug => 1) or + die qq(Something Happened); my $xmlFile = ""; open (XML, "posts.xml"); while(<XML>) { $xmlFile .= $_; } close(XML); #print $xslt->serve $xmlFile; $xslt->transform ($xmlFile); print $xslt->toString; $xslt->dispose();
Which produces the following error when run:

no element found at line 1, column 0, byte -1 at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6/i686-linux/XML/ line 187

I have tried everything. The contents of the $xmlFile and $xslFile are all there (ie: there isn't a problem filling these vars with content). Processing these two files with Xalan takes less than a second and produces exactly what I want. The reason I can't use Xalan is because my web host only has XML::XSLT available. Thanks for the help.

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.
