ANN: cElementTree 0.9.8 (january 23, 2005)

Fredrik Lundh fredrik at
Sun Jan 23 17:24:35 CET 2005 proudly presents release 0.9.8 of the cElementTree library,
a fast and very efficient implementation of the ElementTree API, for
Python 2.1 and later.  On typical documents, it's 15-20 times faster
than the Python version of ElementTree, and uses 2-5 times less

This release includes a new "iterparse" mechanism, which can be
used to process the tree as it is being built.  While not quite as
fast as a full parse, it's over 4 times faster than Python's standard
SAX interface, and even a bit faster than sgmlop.

The library is available as C source code, and as Windows installers
for all recent Python versions.  Get your copy here:

The cElementTree module uses some support functions from the standard
ElementTree library, and will not work properly without it.  If you
haven't installed it already, you can get it from:
