I have no idea why you wouldn't recommend

use XML::LibXML::Reader qw( ); my $reader = XML::LibXML::Reader->new( location => $file_or_url, load_ext_dtd => 0, expand_entities => 0, ); 1 while $reader->read;

Wrapping this up just so you get something you can call higher-level simply is pure waste.

    Say, because it doesn't do anything? I mean, yes, it does some kind of basic format validation, but once you actually need to extract some data out of the file, things start getting complicated very quickly.

      Nothing? What are you talking about? It validates the file as the OP requested.

      ...Actually, that's now what he requested. He requested

      use XML::LibXML::Reader qw( XML_READER_TYPE_ENTITY_REFERENCE ); my $reader = XML::LibXML::Reader->new( location => $file_or_url, load_ext_dtd => 0, expand_entities => 0, ); while ($reader->read) { die if $reader->nodeType == XML_READER_TYPE_ENTITY_REFERENCE; }

      What exactly is the problem???
