( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
If you have control of the program writing the XML files, the best approach is to make it write each one to a temporary file location and once all the data has been written, move it to its final destination location. In that way you are never going to find an incomplete .xml on the filesystem.

Another thing you can do is to check the file contents. Incomplete XML files are easy to detect, you can use an XML parser or just read the first XML tag in the file and then check that the last bytes of the file are the corresponding closing tag.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
