After xml_split here is xml_merge. The tool is quite simple, just feed it the foo-00.xml file created by xml_split and it will happily output the entire file.

Note that, just like xml_split, it respects the encoding and indentation of the original XML file.

    Maybe it would be a cool idea to put this (and xml_split) in the next XML::Twig release.

    Very helpfull indeed. But while testing it, if the splitting produce f00-100.xml and above, the meging is not applyed... in the resulting xml: <?merge subdocs = 0 :foo-01.xml?> <?merge subdocs = 0 :foo-02.xml?> <?merge subdocs = 0 :foo-03.xml?> and so one... Am i missing something or there is a problem on the index handling? P.S. like it alot!

      It seems to work fine here (how often have you heard this? ;--): xml_split produces foo-00.xml, foo-01.xml to foo-99.xml, then foo-100.xml and above. And then xml_merge rebuilds the original file.

      Do you have a test case?

        Very often, yes. Well i have to mention that the splitting is used fot a particular section name ( -c SectionName foo.xml). Becuase my twig is v.3.14 i changed the inherited_att to inherit_att (line 102 in to conform with the XML::Twing::Elt. Worked fine in small xmls. In a big one had the prob. i took a different section (to reduce the splitted xmls) and then split again in th foo-01 to do foo-01-00 and so on. Merged the foo-01-00 but again had the same lines (fewer this time). Also merge does not reqs the -o flag so, i put the > result.xml. thnks
