On XML::Parser

[ #13741 ]

I'm now maintaining XML::Parser. This is probably "my" most downloaded module, but it's not mine really so it doesn't count.

It's not a nice module (in that it takes the XML::Parser namespace which makes newbies think that it is the way to parse XML, and it's not compatible with any other APIs (SAX)), so from here on out it will be purely bug fixes. Any bugs please send to the perl-xml list.

I just released 2.32 which ironically broke XML::DOM. TJ has just released a new XML::DOM that fixes this (it was an invalid assumption in XML::DOM anyway). All fun and games.

  • It's good to see XML::Parser finally has somebody taking care of it. I realise that it's mostly stable, but bugs inevitably occur, and it's good to see new versions get released with fixes.

    Now, I just need to figure out a suitable patch to let XML::SAX::Expat throw the correct exceptions and pass it to you...


  • As you have repeatedly said in the past "Don't use XML::Parser", I'm not conviced this is such a good thing. :-)
