REXML::Formatters::Pretty

Pretty-prints an XML document. This destroys whitespace in text nodes and will insert carriage returns and indentations.

TODO: Add an option to print attributes on new lines

Attributes

compact[RW]

If compact is set to true, then the formatter will attempt to use as little space as possible

width[RW]

The width of a page. Used for formatting text

Public Class Methods

new( indentation=2, ie_hack=false ) click to toggle source

Create a new pretty printer.

output

An object implementing ‘<<(String)’, to which the output will be written.

indentation

An integer greater than 0. The indentation of each level will be this number of spaces. If this is < 1, the behavior of this object is undefined. Defaults to 2.

ie_hack

If true, the printer will insert whitespace before closing empty tags, thereby allowing Internet Explorer’s feeble XML parser to function. Defaults to false.

  # itself, then we don't need a carriage return... which makes this
