Builder::XmlMarkup extra to_s tag


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to print out some xml and don’t know what I’m doing. I’m
getting
this <to_s/> tag in the output. Where is it coming from and how do I get
rid
of it. Here’s my test code. Any help appreciated.

CODE:
require “builder”
class Fruit
attr_accessor :name
end
fruit = Fruit.new()
fruit.name = “Apple”
xml = Builder::XmlMarkup.new(:indent=>2)
xml.fruit do
xml.name(fruit.name)
end
f = File.new(“test.xml”, “w”)
f.print(xml)

OUTPUT:

Apple

<to_s/>

Thanks,
Ted

Thanks,

or change your original to:
f.print(xml.target!)
The to_s comes from print getting something that is not a String and
coercing it with to_s which the Builder object thinks is an empty tag.
