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

Yes, and that in itself is actually going against the point of what I wrote

You gave code that "somebody might choose to customize to meet their needs." I really don't care if telling them what they may need to customise goes against some point you were trying to make.

But you also didn't comment on the main point of my reply

That sometimes, the simplest approach is to role our your own? I have no comment to make about that.

Treating it like a black box is counter to the whole purpose and hints that I failed at conveying the point to you and thus likely to others and so some clarifications were in order.


(Upd: I believe the post-processor mention started in the belief that you might have had more that wasn't shown. As for the pre-processor, that's probably the easiest way to handle the character encoding. )

If the prospective consumer of this example code is unable to determine on their own what the code handles, then they should not be trying to use the code.

Perhaps. I'll have to think about that.
