HTML::DOM, version 0.058 HTML::DOM is a Perl implementation of the HTML Document Object Model This is an alpha release. So far, the level-2 core, HTML and event DOM interfaces have been implemented, and some of the level-2 style sheet interfaces. RECENT CHANGES See the Changes file for the long version. 0.058 ----- Bug fix: When a <button> element is clicked, its value is now included in the form data even if it has no value. Previously, value- less buttons would be omitted. 0.057 ----- Bug fix: $doc->base now returns the URL of the page if it is a data URL, instead of just ‘data:’. 0.056 ----- Bug fix: $doc->title no longer dies when setting the title of a docu- ment with no head node. Miscellaneous: The make_request method of form elements has been tweaked to work with Encode 2.80. Technically, it was working, but, due to changed output in Encode 2.80, the tests started failing. So now the MIME encoding is skipped on a string consisting solely of spaces and printable ASCII. (This was easier than having two sets of tests.) TO DO - Finish Level 2 CSS support - outerHTML/innerText? - Other DOM interfaces (the rest of level 2, and level 3) - HTML 5 stuff - Write more complete documentation - Write more tests - Finishing checking for memory leaks (run all tests under Devel::Leak::Object) INSTALLATION The easiest way to install this module is to use the CPAN module or the cpan script: [sudo] perl -MCPAN -e "install HTML::DOM" [sudo] cpan HTML::DOM Or you can use the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test [sudo] make install DEPENDENCIES This module requires perl 5.8.3 or higher and the following Perl modules: - Scalar::Util 1.14 or later - Exporter 5.57 or later - URI - LWP 1.13 or later - CSS::DOM 0.07 or later - HTML::Tagset 3.02 or later - HTML::Parser 3.46 or later - HTML::Encoding is required if the parse_file method is to be used. - Tie::RefHash::Weak 0.08 or higher, if you are using perl 5.8.x DOCUMENTATION After installing, you can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command. perldoc HTML::DOM Or try using man (it's faster, in my experience): man HTML::DOM COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE Copyright (C) 2007-16 Father Chrysostomos This program is free software; you may redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as perl.
