in reply to xml parsers: do I need one?

I really cannot comment on what you need (and neither can any other monk) but I too was an XML naysayer for quite some time. A coworker turned me on to XML::LibXML and then to the power of XPath. I cannot even begin to tell you the power of XPath. This entry from the perl advent calendar gives a real nice intro with links to more on XPath.

    And since it's based on a library written in C, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it beats the Java apps too.

      Java is only slow on speed startup. For execution, it's not THAT much difference since hotspot (optimizing) or just the regular execution JVM's turn the byte code into a compiled program.

        I am aware of that. Java has caught up a great deal in performance issues. Nevertheless, Java code is not as low level as C code. (char* anyone?)
