( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If you have XML::SAX (which includes a PurePerl parser) then no external libraries are required for XML::Simple to work. If you want better parsing speed then by all means use XML::Parser (or XML::SAX::ExpatXS) but either of these Perl modules will need access to libexpat. No other external libraries are required.

If I were trying to diagnose it, I'd probably use the strace tool (on Linux) to log the system calls that the application is making. The log would probably show an attempt to open a file that doesn't exist.

The other thing you could do is rebuild your PerlApp compilation with a modified copy of XML::Simple. Find the line that generates that error and modify the error string to include $@ - the text of the error that caused the parser load to fail. E.g.:

croak "XMLin() requires either XML::SAX or XML::Parser ($@)";

In reply to Re^3: XML::Simple -> XMLin() requires either XML::SAX or XML::Parser by grantm
in thread XML::Simple -> XMLin() requires either XML::SAX or XML::Parser by tptass

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.
