in reply to XML::Parser error

The char handler does not necessarily return all of the contiguous char data in one go. From the docs:
Char (Expat, String) This event is generated when non-markup is recognized. The non-markup sequence of characters is in String. A single non-markup sequence of characters may generate multiple calls to this handler. Whatever the encoding of the string in the original document, this is given to the handler in UTF-8.
So you will have to concatenate the char data yourself. That said, I would likely use some higher level library rather than use XML::Parser directly, then you very likely wouldn't have to do the concatenating yourself.

    Thanks. That helped how to fix for now. Any suggestions on what higher level module would be good to use? Basically I am parsing XML files delivered every 15 minutes to my server to parse and load into the DB. I looked around when developing and didn't really see anything that would fit that. Maybe I didn't look hard enough though.

      I'm partial to XML::Rules. Others like XML::Twig. Either is good if the docs are large and you should be processing the doc as you read it. XML::LibXML can be appropriate also (XPath support is great if you need that sort of thing).
