XML::Easy::Content - abstract form of XML content
$content = XML::Easy::Content->new([
$twine = $content->twine;
An object of this class represents a chunk of XML content, the kind of
matter that can be contained within an XML element. This is in an
abstract form, intended for general manipulation. It is completely
isolated from the textual representation of XML, and holds only the
meaningful content of the chunk. The data in a content object cannot
be modified: different data requires the creation of a new object.
An XML content chunk consists of a sequence of zero or more characters
and XML elements, interspersed in any fashion. Character content can
use almost all Unicode characters, with only a few characters (such as
most of the ASCII control characters) prohibited by the specification
from being directly represented in XML. Each XML element in a content
chunk itself recursively contains a chunk of content, in addition to
having attached metadata.
This class is not meant to be subclassed. XML content is unextendable,
dumb data. Content objects are better processed using the functions in
XML::Easy::NodeBasics than using the methods of this class.
Constructs and returns a new content chunk object with the
specified content. TWINE must be a reference to an array listing
the chunk's content in twine form (see "Twine" in
XML::Easy::NodeBasics). The content is checked for validity,
against the XML 1.0 specification, and the function "die"s if it is
Returns a reference to an array listing the chunk's content in
twine form (see "Twine" in XML::Easy::NodeBasics).
The returned array must not be subsequently modified. If possible,
it will be marked as read-only in order to prevent modification.
Deprecated alias for the "twine" method.
