As Matt mentioned, XML::SAX::ByRecord from the XML::SAX::Machines distribution might be useful here. Make sure you get at least XML-SAX-Machines-0.31, I fixed a bug in X::S::ByRecord to get this example working <:-/>.

ByRecord is designed for handling record oriented XML files one record at a time. It splits the document apart in to individual documents, one per record, and runs them through a pipeline of SAX processors, merging the resulting subdocuments back in to the body of the output document. Everything that's not a record is passed through verbatim. This should make things a bit easier on the old memory banks, reduce time to first output, and make it possible to use simpler stylesheets.

Here's a recipe that might get you started. It copys only the <state> records through to the output (the StateML file I fed it has several different record types). Feel free to email me and/or the perl-xml list if you have questions.

use XML::SAX::Machines 0.31; use XML::SAX::Machines qw( Pipeline ByRecord Tap ); use XML::Filter::XSLT; my $f =XML::Filter::XSLT->new( Source => { ByteStream => \*DATA } ); Pipeline( ByRecord( $f ), \*STDOUT )->parse_uri( $ARGV[0] ); ## "in-place upgrades" until some new releases hit CPAN ;) use IO::Handle; ## XML::LibXML needs this to read from DATA ## and this makes XML::Filter::XSLT machine compliant sub XML::Filter::XSLT::LibXSLT::set_handler { my $self = shift; $self->{Handler} = shift; $self->{Parser}->set_handler( $self->{Handler} ) if $self->{Parser}; } __END__ <xslt:transform version="1.0" xmlns:xslt="" > <xslt:template match="state"> <xslt:copy-of select="."/> </xslt:template> </xslt:transform>
