Name : libxml2-devel Relocations: /usr Version : 2.4.10 Vendor: Red Hat, Inc. Release : 0.7x.2 Build Date: Tue 13 Nov 2001 11:27:18 AM EST Install date: Sun 17 Mar 2002 06:36:10 PM EST Build Host: Group : Development/Libraries Source RPM: libxml2-2.4.10-0.7x.2.src.rpm Size : 3164586 License: LGPL Packager : Red Hat, Inc. <> URL : Summary : Libraries, includes, etc. to develop XML and HTML applications =================Now to the bug ================= perldoc XML::LibXML::Document NAME XML::LibXML::Document - DOM Document Class SYNOPSIS use XML::LibXML::Document; $dom = XML::LibXML::Document->new( $version, $encoding ); $dom = XML::LibXML::Document->createDocument( $version, $encoding ); $strEncoding = $doc->getEncoding(); $strVersion = $doc->getVersion(); $docstring = $dom->toString([$format]); $document->toStringHTML(); $bool = $dom->is_valid(); $dom->validate(); $root = $dom->getDocumentElement($name, $namespace ); $root = $dom->documentElement; $dom->setDocumentElement( $root ); $element = $dom->createElement( $nodename ); $element = $dom->createElementNS( $namespaceURI, $qname ); $text = $dom->createTextNode( $content_text ); $comment = $dom->createComment( $comment_text ); $attrnode = $doc->createAttribute($name [,$value]); $fragment = $doc->createDocumentFragment() $attrnode = $doc->createAttributeNS( namespaceURI, $name [,$value] ); $cdata = $dom->create( $cdata_content ); $document->importNode( $node [, $move] ); As far as I know it is not possible to 'use' a module that does not exist =]. So, to reproduce this "bug": % perl -mXML::LibXML::Document Can't locate XML/LibXML/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .). BEGIN failed--compilation aborted. What you really mean is: $ perl -mXML::LibXML -MData::Dumper -e 'print Dumper(XML::LibXML::Document->new())' $VAR1 = bless( do{\(my $o = 135844216)}, 'XML::LibXML::Document' ); So, we have a documentation bug, a fuckup, or I'm missing something ;p
