REXML - controlling whitespaces and inserting CR

Hello All,

I have an XML file containing this


Description de
Description en


Description de
Description en

I made a code to add a new tag to each .
The part of code is:

require “rexml/document”
include REXML


pval = Element.new(“value”)
pval.add_attribute(“xml:lang”,“fr”)
pval.add_text(“Description fr”)
fproperty.elements << pval
fproperty is the node object

My final XML file looks like this:

Description de Description en Description fr Description de Description en Description fr

One “TAB” is inserted for each 4 spaces which were in the original file.
How to avoid this?
And how to add a CR to the new element?

Thanks for your help, I’m a very newby

   <value xml:lang="en">Description en</value>
 pval = Element.new("value")

Description en

I think, you will have to create your own formatter - or use a
different one for output. You’ll find some explanation in the REXML
documentation.

Kind regards

Thank you Robert for your reply.
I am willing to write my own formatter but despite I read some REXML
docs, I don’t know where to begin. :smiley:

This is really my first day with ruby;
concerning REXML I’ll be happy to be pointed to some samples.

In advance Thanks to All,

Charles

I saw it before but I’ll give it a look again.
Great thank you.

Afternoon,

You might find it just as easy to take that output and push it out to a
file
and then hit it with xmlindent (http://xmlindent.sourceforge.net/) it
will
do exactly what you want. No sense in re-inventing the wheel.

Yes John.
It seems like it will ideally fit my need.

Thanks a lot.
