XML::PatAct::MatchName - A pattern module for matching element names

use XML::PatAct::MatchName;
my $matcher = XML::PatAct::MatchName->new();
my $patterns = [ 'foo' => ACTION,
                 'bar/foo' => ACTION,
                 ... ];

XML::PatAct::MatchName is a pattern module for use with PatAct drivers for applying pattern-action lists to XML parses or trees. XML::PatAct::MatchName is a simple pattern module that uses just element names to match on. If multiple names are supplied seperated by `"/"' characters, then all of the parent element names must match as well.

The order of patterns in the list is not significant. XML::PatAct::MatchName will use the most specific match. Using the synopsis above as an example, if you have an element `"foo"', `"bar/foo"' will match if `"foo"' is in an element `"bar"', otherwise just the pattern with `"foo"' will match.
