Subject: serialize(2) not supported anymore with libxml2.7.8
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 791b
It seems that toString(2) resp. serialize(2) is not anymore supported by libxml2.7.8. The output of serialize(2) is now the same as the output of serialize(1). The changes seemed to happen with the following libxml2 commit: Author: Adam Spragg <> Date: Mon Nov 1 14:24:56 2010 +0100 Force _xmlSaveCtxt.format to be 0 or 1 * xmlsave.c: force _xmlSaveCtxt.format to be 0 or 1 and check accordingly, this will allow other values of "format" to be used for other purposes. I don't know exactly how to deal with the situation in XML::LibXML. Maybe the documentation should just be adjusted and point out that $format >= 2 is not supported anymore by libxml. Or maybe the libxml2 change was accidental and should be reverted? Regards, Slaven
