XML::Handler::CanonXMLWriter - output XML in canonical XML format

use XML::Handler::CanonXMLWriter;
$writer = XML::Handler::CanonXMLWriter OPTIONS;
$parser->parse(Handler => $writer);

"XML::Handler::CanonXMLWriter" is a PerlSAX handler that will return a string or write a stream of canonical XML for an XML instance and it's content.

"XML::Handler::CanonXMLWriter" objects hold the options used for writing the XML objects. Options can be supplied when the the object is created,

$writer = new XML::Handler::CanonXMLWriter PrintComments => 1;

or modified at any time before calling the parser's `"parse()"' method:

$writer->{PrintComments} = 0;

IOHandle contains a handle for writing the canonical XML to. If an IOHandle is not provided, the canonical XML string will be returned from `"parse()"'.
By default comments are not written to the output. Setting comment to a true value will include comments in the output.
