You can get away with using a non-conforming XML parser if you control the production of XML you are planning to parse and thus restrict the set of XML constructs that can appear in your documents. If you control both the production and consumption of the data then you might as well choose a more natural (for your application and environment) and efficient (that’s why choose this new parser) exchange format than XML.
A more common scenario is when you have to parse XML supplied by various third parties and once you say your format is XML then all bets are off; it is only a matter of time before someone sends you a perfectly valid XML document that your application won’t be able to handle.
In these conditions, don't you think that 53MB to be able to read an XML file is a little bit " Here is how it works: The XML parser loads a full XML file in memory, it parses the file and it generates a tree structure representing the XML file.
Of course, you can also parse XML data that you have already stored yourself into a memory buffer.
(Note that the XMLReader functions require libxml2 version later than 2.6.)Includes: Author: Daniel Veillard Demonstrate the use of xml Text Reader Preserve Pattern() to parse an XML file with the xml Reader while collecting only some subparts of the document.

) non-validating yet mostly conforming XML parser written in C.So you can call the validator function first to check the structure. Report an issue or request for a feature here Your contribution in terms of donation, testing, bug fixes, code development etc. Recently there’s been a bunch of announcements of new XML parsers that claim to be very fast, very small or both.I also see a lot of people get very enthusiastic about using them in their applications.Includes: Author: Aleksey Sanin and Daniel Veillard Demonstrate the use of xml Reader For File() to parse an XML file validating the content in the process and activating options like entities substitution, and DTD attributes defaulting.
