Subject: XMLout($data, $fh) breaks when $fh is a filehandle, not an IO::Handle object
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 527b
When giving a "common" file handle as OutputFile value for XMLout, as described in the POD: open my $fh, '>:encoding(iso-8859-1)', $path or die "open($path): $!"; XMLout($ref, OutputFile => $fh); the script breaks with the error message: Can't locate object method "print" via package "IO::Handle" at /home/ccm_root/perl5.8/lib/5.8.6/XML/Simple.pm line 549. It seems that there should be a test whether $fh is an IO::Handle object or a file handle; in the latter case, a wrapper IO::Handle object should be created.

You simply need to include this line in your script: use IO::Handle; XML::Simple does not require that the object you pass in to the OutputFile parameter inherits from IO::Handle - it simply assumes the object supports a 'print' method. Regards Grant

You are right. Perhaps you could clarify the POD regarding this detail? (At first I tried copying the example from the POD and run into this problem. A friend finally explained to me what happens if "use IO::Handle" is included, but what if no Perl expert is at hand?) Thanks for the hint and best regards Helge Show quoted text
