in thread parsing XML fragments (xml log files) with XML::Parser

It told me that there was no 'foo' tag despite being clearly there and that being recognized as a 'foo' tag previously. Eventually I figured out that XML amespaces were to blame

I find it very unfortunate that XPath requires you to specify the namespace. I wish libxml had an option to configure what it meant to have no prefix in an XPath node test:

  • Missing prefix = Match the null namespace. (Standard)
  • Missing prefix = Match some previously defined default namespace.
  • Missing prefix = Match any namespace.
