Subject: "<" not escaped in hash keys in methodResponse
It looks like whatever encodes hash structures as XML doesn't escape "<" characters if they appear in hash keys. Works fine for hash values with "<" characters, though. ----- in httpd.conf ----- <Location /webwork2_rpc> SetHandler perl-script PerlHandler Apache::XMLRPC::Lite PerlSetVar dispatch_to "WeBWorK::RPC" </Location> ----- in WeBWorK/RPC.pm ----- package WeBWorK::RPC; sub hi { my %foo; $foo{"the < message"} = "hello world"; $foo{"another_thing"} = "bar"; return \%foo; } ----- in test.pl ----- my $rpc = XMLRPC::Lite->proxy("https://my.example.com:); my $result = $rpc->call("WeBWorK.RPC.hi"); Show quoted text
----- the result ----- not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1, column 103, byte 103 at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/mach/XML/Parser.pm line 187 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><methodResponse><params><param><value><struct><member><name>the < message</name><value><string>hello world</string></value></member><member><name>another_thing</name><value><string>bar &lt; foo</string></value></member></struct></value></param></params></methodResponse> at sam_xmlrpc_test.pl line 14

Whoops, I messed up test.pl: ----- in test.pl ----- my $rpc = XMLRPC::Lite->proxy("https://my.example.com:8000/webwork2_rpc"); my $result = $rpc->call("WeBWorK.RPC.hi");
