For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
problem about TclDOM

Posted by cubetan (cubetan), 28 June 2006
I find a problem when I use tcldom2.6

my codes:

package require dom
package require dom::libxml2

set xml "<book><chapter>chapter 1</chapter><chapter>chapter 2</chapter><chapter>chapter 3</chapter></book>"
set root [dom:OMImplementation parse $xml]
puts "xml:"
puts [dom:OMImplementation serialize $root -indent true]

set liChapter [dom::selectNode $root /book/chapter]
foreach chapter $liChapter {
     puts nodename=[dom::node cget $chapter -nodeName]
puts "xml after destroy the first chapter element:"
dom:OMImplementation destroy [lindex $liChapter 0]

puts [dom:OMImplementation serialize $root -indent true]

The output above codes:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
 <chapter>chapter 1</chapter>
 <chapter>chapter 2</chapter>
 <chapter>chapter 3</chapter>

xml after destroy the first chapter element:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
 <chapter>chapter 2</chapter>
 <chapter>chapter 3</chapter>

I want to delete the first chapter element. But the dom:OMImplementation destroy doesn't work.

help me, thanks!

Hi, Cubetan and welcome.   Nothing that I can see that's obviously wrong but your question is "niche" even for me.   I think I would persue it further with the lists / support board specific for TclDOM ...
