( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
It took me a little while to figure out how to load a local XML file, so I figured I'd post it in case anyone else needed to do such a thing.

use IO::File; ... my $fileStream = new IO::File ("yourDocumentName.xml"); ... my $parser = new XML::Parser ( Handlers => { # Creates our parser object Start => \&hdl_start, End => \&hdl_end, Char => \&hdl_char, Default => \&hdl_def, } ); ... $parser->parse($fileStream);
It's not very complicated, but I figured I'd post it as a reference.

Great tutorial - very useful - Thanks.



A Quick revision: I was just notified by OeufMayo that there is another way to read in the file that I entirely missed. Apparently, you can also use:

$parser->parsefile($filename)
I guess that would have been a lot easier in the first place. :-D
