SUMMARY

MKDoc::XML::Decode is a very simple module with pluggable entity decoding mechanism. At the moment there are three modules:

xml − Decodes ' " > < and & xhtml − Decodes XHTML entities such as é numeric − Decodes numeric entities such as A

That’s it.

This module and its counterpart MKDoc::XML::Encode are used by MKDoc::XML::Dumper to XML-encode and XML-decode litterals.

API

my $decode_object = new MKDoc::XML::Decode (@modules);
Constructs a new decode object using the modules specified in @modules.

my $decoded = $decode_object−>decode ($stuff);
Decodes $stuff and returns it into $decoded.

Any entity which is not recognized will be returned as is but will trigger a warning.
