Stream.xml(path)

If there is no current XML object, attempts to parse the string as XML and fails if unsuccessful. If there is a current XML object, it will be reused.

Returns a specific piece of data from the XML object, determined by the path. path should be an expression or a quoted string. path is a subset of the Xpath standard.

Consider this source stream:


War and Peace
No et Moi

 

Examples of path:

To accord with standard XML and XPath usage, the first child of an XML node is child [1], not [0]. XML attributes are not related to Tinderbox attributes.
