in thread XML::Twig and threads [solved]

Hello, BrowserUK.

I see. Example XML is just 613KB.

Copying Twig object is terribly slow. I guess Data::Dumper or dclone of storable will not do any good, because it is just huge.

for ( $someData->children_copy( 'managedObject') ){ handle_managedObject($t, $_); }
Without copy, it is very fast.
for ( $someData->children( 'managedObject') ){ handle_managedObject($t, $_); }
So, I vaguely imagined rewriting managedObject sub using regex, for example ...
my ($t, $element)=@_;

# create rewrite rules using Twig 
my %rewrite_rules =(
    q/name="name"/ => "some value",

#replace with regex
my $buffer=$element->sprint; #get plain text of element
for (keys %rewrite_rules){
    $buffer =~ s/ $_  (.*?)  >  .*?  (?=<)
                /${_} ${1} $rewrite_rules{$_}/sx;

#just print out without changing $element
print $fh $buffer;

I will do like this, if I were.

Regards and thanks for your response.

    I vaguely imagined rewriting managedObject sub using regex,

    Given the size of the OPs target files -- 100MB -- I'd drop the use of XML parser entirely and process the file as text.

    That statement is tantamount to blasphemy around here, but it would be quicker, simpler and would work. And nobody would think twice if the files weren't labeled "XML".

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'

      Haha, that was good one. I tried mentioned replacement and it's under 2 minutes for 90MB XML file, so I would expect 0.5h for max data set. Thanks for hints!
