This is a Perl extension interface to James Clark's XML parser, expat. It requires at least version 5.004 of perl and it requires that you have release 1.95.0 or greater of expat installed. You can download expat from http://sourceforge.net/projects/expat/
Best way is to install 'expat-devel' package with your OS package manager.
Xubuntu 6.06: libexpat1-dev
After that run `cpan XML::Parser`.
You can install this module from OS package too, but CPAN has most fresh version. CentOS/RHEL/Fedora: perl-XML-Parser
The documentation for this extension can be found in pod format at the end of the files Parser.pm and Expat/Expat.pm. The perldoc program, provided with the perl distribution, can be used to view this documentation.
This was modified from the original XML::Parser created by Larry Wall.
To manually install this module, cd to the directory that contains this README file and type the following:
Alternatively, if you plan to install XML::Parser somewhere other than your system's perl library directory. You can type something like this:
perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/me/perl INSTALLDIRS=perl
Then to build you run make.
You can then test the module by typing:
There are some sample utilities in the samples directory along with an xml form of the XML specification to test them on. You may need to change the '#!' line at the top of these utilities to what is appropriate for your system. If you're going to play around with them prior to installing the module, you would need to add the blib paths to your perl search path, like this (assuming your current directory is samples):
perl -I../blib/lib -I../blib/arch xmlcomments REC-xml-19980210.xml
or set your PERLLIB environment variable.
If you have write access to the installation directories, you may then install by typing:
Discussion on features and bugs of this software and general discussion on topics relating to perl and XML takes place on the perl-xml mailing list, to which you can subscribe by sending mail to:
Version 2.31 is a minor bugfix release to allow XML::Parser to work under the forthcoming Perl 5.8.0 release. There are no functional changes.
Expat is no longer included with this package. It must now be already installed on your system as a library. You may download the library version of expat from http://sourceforge.net/projects/expat/. After downloading, expat must be configured (an automatic script does this), built and installed.
A workaround has been provided for those people who couldn't compile Expat.xs with a perl 5.6.0 with USE_5005THREADS on.
A bug that prevented IO::Handler from being read by the parse method has been fixed.
Fixed a bug in reading external entities with incremental parsing.
