in reply to Benchmarks of XML Parsers

Thanks, good stuff. If you get a chance you might throw in XML::SAX::ExpatXS, which I seem to remember was pretty fast and also has some nice SAX features the others don't.

I recently working on a project where I replaced HTML::Parser with XML::LibXML using its html parsing mode. The speed improvement was something like 10x (not sure exactly since I made a lot of other changes too).

    Added XML::SAX::ExpatXS.

      Cool. Looks like it's still the fastest SAX parser, but that doesn't help so much when you're trying to build a tree in memory. Much faster to do it directly.
