Here's my patch, developed against HEAD, that adds the function
'xpath_exists'. The function is a lot simpler than originally thought,
so none of the string manipulation previously discussed was required.
I've also included some regression tests that test the function with and
without xml namespaces. I should note that before I added my tests all
existing tests passed.
One observation that can be made is that I've largely copied the
existing xpath function and altered it to use a different method from
the libxml API. I've done it to save me redoing all the namespace
handling, however it's apparent to me that if we wanted to expose more
of the libxml api we will quickly start having a lot of duplicate code.
I notice that refactoring existing code whilst adding new code is
generally frowned upon, so once this patch is accepted I will look to
refactor the xpath and xpath_exists function. I could even add an
xpath_count method at the same time ;) .
Thanks in advance for any and all feedback,
