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

I've also filed a bug report.

[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
