Re^8: Is there any XML reader like this? (XML::Simple beats LibXML hands down in the speed stakes!)
in thread Is there any XML reader like this?
"Unencoded"? XML::Simple doesn't handle such broken XML.
$ perl -MXML::Simple -e'XMLin("<root><foo>\xE9</foo></root>");'
Entity: line 1: parser error : Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !
Bytes: 0xE9 0x3C 0x2F 0x66
Just as I don't use a chainsaw to trim my toenails, I use the XML tool that suits my purpose.
I didn't not try to get you to use XML::LibXML. I was just contradicting obviously incorrect information.
