Subject: need for an XML::Atom::Source

the source for an entry is currently assumed to be a simple string, but the spec allows for child elements. see http://www.atomenabled.org/developers/syndication/atom-format-spec.php#element.$ also, it would be useful if there was a find() utility function similar to XML::Atom::Base::get so as to extract arbitrary elements/values via xpath with a supplied namespace.

I believe passing Atom::Entry or Atom::Feed to source, like $entry->source($another_entry) should just work. On 10/6/07, Anonymous Sender via RT <bug-XML-Atom@rt.cpan.org> wrote:

i guess i wasn't clear that i want to extract the child nodes from a parsed feed, and not construct a feed. my second paragraph hinted at that. if i'm parsing a feed which has the structure: feed/entry/source/id /title how do i get at the id element within the entry? also, any comment on the suggestion for a utility function for arbitrary xpath? the feed i'm parsing has attributes in their own namespace and there doesn't seem to be a good way of getting at them. an example is the previously mentioned 'id': feed/entry/source/id@origid On Sun Oct 07 02:51:52 2007, miyagawa@gmail.com wrote:

I tried that and found that child elements that are not allowed in the source were also copied (entry elements from a feed or content from an entry). This suggests that you can't use a feed or entry that already exists. Instead, a new feed or entry will need to be constructed from the data and used explicitly. Is this the intent?
