( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If you do it like:

perl -ne'print $_ if ! /^<es\s*$/' huge.xml | perl extract.pl -

Then you don't even have to wait for the huge file to be read twice. The time required could well be almost the same as it would be without the filter. Since the filter code likely can run faster than the XML parsing code, the difference in run-time could just be the insignificant time it takes to filter one buffer's worth of XML. It would likely take a bit more CPU (probably less than 2x), but I doubt processing a huge XML file is usually CPU-bound on most systems.

Though, brettski didn't seem to find even that proposal acceptable when I proposed it in chat around the time that the root node was posted.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
