hello this error was already reported to the perl-xml mailing list my system: v5.6.1 built for i586-linux Linux mjdev 2.4.10-4GB #1 Tue Sep 25 12:33:54 GMT 2001 i686 unknown XML-SAX-Expat-0.30 XML-SAX-0.09 I have this xml file: <?xml version="1.0"?> <birds> <family name="Eagles"> <species comment = "in germany only in the alpes"> <english_name>Golden Eagle</english_name> <german_name>Steinadler</german_name> <food>Birds, Mammals</food> </species> <species comment = "greatest eagle in Europe"> <english_name>White-tailed Eagle</english_name> <german_name>Seeadler</german_name> <food>Birds, Mammals, Fish</food> </species> </iifamily> </birds> this file is passed as ARGV[0] to my script (the script is attached) when I run the code in the attached perl file I get this error before installing XML::Expat found fatal errorEnd tag mismatch (iifamily != family) [Ln: 14, Col: 11] after installing XML::Expat I get this mismatched tag at line 14, column 3, byte 430 at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i586-linux/XML/ line 185 with XML::Expat it seems that the methods in my error handler are never called. I think with XML-SAX the newest SAX-Implementation is always used and because XML::Expat is newer than the default it is used here (which is okay because someone at the mailing list said that XML::Expat would be the best choice) regards markus
