Subject: XPath regex translates literal '=' to ' eq '
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 880b
As posted on Any equal sign inside a xpath regex will be translate to ' eq '. The only hack to avoid this is to use the hex code \x3d. The following script fully reproduces the bug: use strict; use warnings; use XML::Twig; my $data = do { local $/; <DATA> }; my $t= XML::Twig->new( twig_handlers => { q{myelement[@myatt =~ /val=/]} => sub { print "/val=/ matches '$_->{att}{myatt}'\n" }, q{myelement[@myatt =~ /val\x3d/]} => sub { print "/val\\x3d/ matches '$_->{att}{myatt}'\n" }, }, ); $t->parse( $data ); __DATA__ <root> <myelement myatt="val eq "/> <myelement myatt="val="/> </root> perl -v This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 2 (v5.16.2) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread cpan -D XML::Twig Installed: 3.46 CPAN: 3.46 up to date Regards, - Miller
Fixed in 3.47, see explanations on SO. __ mirod
