in reply to (XML::Parser) Finding and fixing a bug

I have now requested dual ownership of XML::Parser. If/when this happens I will apply the bug fix and a few other changes I wish to make and release an update.

    Hi Matt,

    I'm getting a memory leak in some old code I have inherited - it does this:

    sub getXMLTree{ my $parser = new XML::DOM::Parser; $tree = ""; if(!open(MYFILE,"$fileName")) { $tree = $parser->parse("<root></root>"); $tree = createHeader($tree); $tree = createBody($tree); }else{ close(MYFILE); $tree = $parser->parsefile($fileName); } $tree = updateHeader($tree); return ($tree); }
    $filename being a string like "/tmp/myfile.xml"

    Can you (or anyone) clarify, should I change how this is done or get a new version of XML::DOM::Parser (I just installed it last week so I cant see how that would help tho)
