in reply to How can i validate xml file?

Not perl, but if your on a linux os, then check if xmllint is installed, this can be used to validate your xml in superfast time,

system("xmllint --noout foo.xml") and die "Failed!";

    Hi monkey_boy,

    Thanks kool, It's working fine. But, I am getting xml content is it possible to check. And also, i am not allow here to use system function i want sample code.. For ex if i validate xml file with xsd file i use below code like i want code please

    use XML::LibXML; my $schema_file = 'po.xsd'; my $document = 'po.xml'; my $schema = XML::LibXML::Schema->new(location => $schema_file); my $parser = XML::LibXML->new; my $doc = $parser->parse_file($document); eval { $schema->validate($doc) }; die $@ if $@; print "$document validated successfully\n";

      If your input data is not well-formed XML (and I assume that's what you're asking about) then the parse_file call will die. Put a eval around that call and check the value in $@ after parse_file returns.
