class LibXML::Dtd

LibXML DTD Handling


use LibXML::Dtd;

my LibXML::Dtd $dtd .= new($public-id, $system-id);
my LibXML::Dtd $dtd .= parse: :string($dtd-str);
my Str $dtdName = $dtd.getName();
my Str $publicId = $dtd.publicId();
my Str $systemId = $dtd.systemId();
try { $dtd.validate($doc) };
my Bool $valid = $$doc);
if $doc ~~ $dtd { ... } # if doc is valid against the DTD


This class holds a DTD. You may parse a DTD from either a string, or from an external SYSTEM identifier.

No support is available as yet for parsing from a filehandle.

LibXML::Dtd is a sub-class of LibXML::Node, so all the methods available to nodes (particularly Str()) are available to Dtd objects.


method new

# preferred constructor
multi method new(Str :$public-id, Str :$system-id) returns LibXML::Dtd
# for Perl compat
multi method new(Str $public-id, Str $system-id) returns LibXML::Dtd

Parse a DTD from the system identifier, and return a DTD object that you can pass to $ or $doc.validate().

my $dtd =
                      "SOME // Public / ID / 1.0",
my $doc = LibXML.load: :file("test.xml");

$doc ~~ $dtd;

method parse

method parse(Str :string) returns LibXML::Dtd;

The same as new() above, except you can parse a DTD from a string. Note that parsing from string may fail if the DTD contains external parametric-entity references with relative URLs.

method validate

method validate(
    LibXML::Node:D $node
) returns UInt

validate a parsed XML document against a DTD

This function allows one to validate a (parsed) document against the given XML Schema. The argument of this function should be a LibXML::Document object. If this function succeeds, it will return 0, otherwise it will die() and report the errors found. Because of this validate() should be always evaluated.

method is-valid

method is-valid(
    LibXML::Node:D $node
) returns Bool

Returns True if the passed document is valid against the DTD

method getName

method getName() returns Str

Returns the name of DTD; i.e., the name immediately following the DOCTYPE keyword.

method publicId

method publicId() returns Str

Returns the public identifier of the external subset.

method systemId

method systemId() returns Str

Returns the system identifier of the external subset.
