robustness and reliability

Good point!

I'd give you the double plus if I wasn't 3 floors underneath the dungeon level!

I did ask if there was a 1-to-1 line concurrency, so you can infer from that that I was aware that the solution would not work if there was any mismatch in the line concurrency. Also adding .*? inside the left tag would catch any randomly added attributes, but yes, I can see why regex's are not the way to go if your less than 100% sure about the quality and consistency of the input data.

So that leaves me wondering just exactly how XML::libXML recognises the structure of a tag, what is the black magic therein? And also, how does libXML work on the file without loading it all into memory (the guy said they were extremely large.)

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
