Package groovy.xml

Class XmlNodePrinter


public class XmlNodePrinter extends Object
Prints a groovy.util.Node (as used with XmlParser) including all children in XML format. Typical usage:
 def xml = '<html><head><title>Title</title></head><body><h1>Header</h1></body></html>'
 def root = new XmlParser().parseText(xml)
 new XmlNodePrinter(preserveWhitespace:true).print(root.body[0])
which when run produces this on stdout (or use your own PrintWriter to direct elsewhere):
