( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
use strict; use warnings; use XML::LibXML; my $doc1 = XML::LibXML->new->parse_file('wiki.html'); my $doc2 = XML::LibXML->new->parse_file('timeline.html'); my ($node1) = $doc1->findnodes('//div[@id="metanav"]'); my ($node2) = $doc2->findnodes('//div[@id="metanav"]'); $node1->replaceNode($node2); print $doc1->toString(0);

But the XPath you are using looks wrong. Don't you want to match {http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml}div elements (i.e. XHTML div elements), not div elements with no namespace?

use strict; use warnings; use XML::LibXML; my $xpc = XML::LibXML::XPathContext->new; $xpc->registerNs('h', 'http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'); my $doc1 = XML::LibXML->new->parse_file('wiki.html'); my $doc2 = XML::LibXML->new->parse_file('timeline.html'); my ($node1) = $xpc->findnodes('//h:div[@id="metanav"]', $doc1); my ($node2) = $xpc->findnodes('//h:div[@id="metanav"]', $doc2); $node1->replaceNode($node2); print $doc1->toString(0);

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