Module: REXML

Defined in:


REXML module. This file only adds the following methods to the REXML module, to ease the coding:

  • replace_element_text

  • first_element

  • first_element_text

  • typed_add

  • import

  • self.import

  • delete_elements

Further definitions are just copied from REXML out of Ruby-1.8.4 to solve issues with REXML in Ruby-1.8.2.

The redefinitions of Text::normalize and Attribute#initialize address an issue where entities in element texts and attributes were not escaped. This modifies the behavious of REXML a bit but Sean Russell intends a similar behaviour for the future of REXML.
