in thread creating large xml files
the os is linux.
By obv reasons I mean that I have only a certain amount of ram. To cut down on it's usage for parsing xml I use XML::Twig.
To parse a 50meg xml takes > 1gig memory. It's a multi tasking environment so if 100 files land at the same time it won't be long before the machine grinds to a halt.
So when writing 50meg of xml I would want to do it a chunk at a time.
I could roll my own but then I have to handle all the encoding and what have you.
I'll have a look at SAX.
