A module to assist the importing and exporting of CAL3D data files as used by the IMVU chat system.
Expect this module to change as further information becomes available. Also
expect it to be renamed once its specification stabilises.
Important note: The module will be moved out of the "Local"
namespace when its specification stabilises.
|Identical to 0.01 but gains a description in comments at the head of the file|
|Uses the XML::Structured importer|
|Importing and parsing file into a data structure|
|Importing and parsing string into data structure|
|Exporting data structure as a string|
|Using XML::SAX directly|
|Using XML::Parser directly|
|Parsing numeric content|
|Parsing translations and rotations: It is assumed that a future version would convert "0 0 0 1" into
an array reference: [0,0,0,1] and convert the corresponding array ref back to a string.|
|Morph extensions to the XMF file format (no data is available)|
|quaternion rotation library functions|
XML::Structured requires either XML::Parser or XML::SAX
You'll probably also need XML::NamespaceSupport too though I've not checked
this as I let the CPAN shell install dependancies automatically.
XML::Structured version 1.0 requires a small patch in order to run correctly
without the XML::Parser module.
- Find the XML folder
- Open Structured.pm in a text editor
- Look at the first few lines:
The line "require Exporter;" is missing and should be added.
The line "use XML::Parser;" should be commented out or removed.
use vars qw($VERSION @ISA @EXPORT);
@ISA = qw(Exporter);
@EXPORT = qw(XMLin XMLinfile XMLout);
$VERSION = '1.0';
# use XML::Parser;
