sfink, your right ! This code working fine !
The original code should work fine as well (you've found a bug :)). Since the return value isn't being used for anything, that callback (among others) should be called in void context. The patch is easy, modify Expat.xs, and replace all instances of
G_DISCARD);
with
G_DISCARD|G_VOID);
I've tested this, and it doesn't seem break anything.

I've also filed a bug report.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

[Cosmic37]: now I have tried another blunder - can anyone explain why I am such a dunderhead?
[Cosmic37]: if ( $line =~ /$mydt/ ) { print $line; }
[Cosmic37]: I try to match successive date times stored in variable $mydt
[Cosmic37]: I guess it is searching for the string "$mydt"
[Corion]: Indeed cool, erix ;)
[Cosmic37]: rather than the value of $mydt which is a date time strong such as 2016-01-01 12:30:56
[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
[Corion]: Maybe add an else branch in which you print what the values of $line and $mydt are?
[Cosmic37]: ah thank you I will try
