in reply to Parsing extremely large XML files

Although I haven't done much XML parsing in my day, I am positive that SAX parsers are better fitted to looping through extremely large XML files than DOM parsers. The reason being is that SAX parses the content line-by-line and is parsed using event-handler code, whereas DOM loads it all into memory at one go.

Although there seem to be a plethora of SAX related modules on CPAN, I would reccomend starting with one like XML-SAX.
