in reply to XML::Twig size problem

Which version of perl are you using? Up until 5.16.0 there was a bug in the interpretor that made XML::Twig crash when it hit a large number of children. See a description at Re: XML::Twig too many children?.

Edit: it's early and I haven't had my coffee, so I am not sure I read the post right, so just to be sure: in the handler you do </t>purge</t> the tree right? Otherwise it could be just a case of the memory filling up.

    Hi mirod, I added purge after I posted and am still getting the same result.

    I'm using ActivePerl 5.14.2; I don't see any later downloads on the ActiveState site, so I guess I'm out of luck?

    thanks, Scott

        thanks for the links -- was able to install the later XML::Twig module from cpan without upgrading my Perl -- seems to be working now -- thank you.
