Subject: Problem accessing source from a feed entry
Date: Tue, 28 Aug 2007 12:54:24 +0200
To: bug-XML-Atom@rt.cpan.org
From: Kjell-Magne Øierud <kjellm@linpro.no>
I am having a problem with accessing the source attribute from a feed entry. My problem is easiest described by the following annotated code example: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dumper; use XML::Atom::Feed; # Creating a feed with one entry my $f = XML::Atom::Feed->new(); my $e = XML::Atom::Entry->new(); $e->title("foo"); # Add a source to the entry my $es = XML::Atom::Entry->new; $es->title("bar"); $es->id("2"); $e->source($es); $f->add_entry($e); # Show that the source of the entry is correct when generating the XML. warn $f->as_xml(); my @x = $f->entries; eval { # Try to access source in the anticipated way. warn $x[0]->source->title; }; if ($@) { warn $@; # Prints "Can't locate object method "title" via package "bar2" # (perhaps you forgot to load "bar2"?)" } # Dumper shows that the source is a string?! warn Dumper($x[0]->source); # But the generated XML is correct, so the data must be accessible some way # or another: warn $x[0]->elem->getElementsByTagName("source")->get_node(0) ->getElementsByTagName('title')->string_value; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ To me this looks like a bug, but I can have misunderstood something ... If so, please enlighten me :) My system: * This is perl, v5.8.8 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi * XML::Atom 0.25 * Linux 2.6.20, Ubuntu 7.04 Regards, Kjell-Magne Øierud
