Example of Serialization Anchors

Example of Serialization Anchors

The following example illustrates three serialization anchors:
global level Parser1_Serializer = Serializer >> level 1 contains line level 1 StringSerializer >> level 2 str = "FirstName:«" level 1 ContentSerializer >> level 2 opening_string = "" level 2 closing_string = "" level 2 data_holder = /Person/*s/Name/*s/First level 1 StringSerializer >> level 2 str = "dot013dot010LastName:«"
The first
instructs the Serializer to write the following text in the output document:
First Name:<tab>
writes the value of the
element to the output.
The second
writes the string:
<newline>Last Name:<tab>
The IntelliScript editor represents the newline and tab with ASCII codes and
, respectively.
Now, assume that you run the Serializer on the following XML:
<Person gender="M"> <Name> <First>Ron</First> <Last>Lehrer</Last> </Name> <Id>547329876</Id> <Age>27</Age> </Person>
From the illustrated serialization anchors, the output is:
First Name<tab>Ron<newline>Last Name<tab>
The display of this text is:
First Name: Ron Last Name:
The Serializer contains additional serialization anchors, which are not shown in the above illustration. The complete output of the Serializer is:
First Name: Ron Last Name: Lehrer Id: 547329876 Age: 27 Gender: M
