class Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Parser

This parser is a SAX style parser that reads it’s input as it deems necessary. The parser takes a Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Document, an optional encoding, then given an XML input, sends messages to the Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Document.

Here is an example of using this parser:

# Create a subclass of Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Document and implement
# the events we care about:
class MyDoc < Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Document
  def start_element name, attrs = []
    puts "starting: #{name}"
  end

  def end_element name
    puts "ending: #{name}"
  end
end

# Create our parser
parser = Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Parser.new(MyDoc.new)

# Send some XML to the parser
parser.parse(File.open(ARGV[0]))

For more information about SAX parsers, see Nokogiri::XML::SAX. Also see Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Document for the available events.

new(doc = Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Document.new, encoding = "UTF-8") click to toggle source

Create a new Parser with doc and encoding

# File lib/nokogiri/xml/sax/parser.rb, line 72
def initialize(doc = Nokogiri::XML::SAX::Document.new, encoding = "UTF-8")
  @encoding = check_encoding(encoding)
  @document = doc
  @warned   = false
end

Public Instance Methods

parse(thing, &block) click to toggle source

Parse given thing which may be a string containing xml, or an IO object.

def parse(thing, &block)
  if thing.respond_to?(:read) && thing.respond_to?(:close)
    parse_io(thing, &block)
