( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hmm, it looks weird that a boolean switch should accept 1 but not 0. (???)

So I took a look into the documentation. ...

Turns out that  SuppressEmpty is not a real flag, but that "" and undef are used to define how empty elements are represented or ignored in a case of a true value.

And the docs explicitly talk about "suppressing the generation of warnings" in XMLout().

I find the naming and concept too error prone.

Something like  RepresentEmpty => "off" | "" | undef might have been a better choice.

And I'm understanding even better now, why this module is discouraged, even in its own POD.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
