Hello the list,
I have question about ElementTree module, I didn't find a specific list
so I post here. I hope I'm not wrong.
I would like to know how to change the namespace URI of all the Element
of my XML tree without changing anything else.
I want that because I have to compare 2 XML trees, so I walk trought the
first tree, and each time I found an element, I delete it (with the
Element.remove() function) on the second tree. This way, I can see if
there is remaining or lacking elements in my second tree.
The problem is that my two trees may not have the same namespace, so the
Element.remove() function doesn't work. That's why I want to change the
Also, The Element.remove() documentation says it compares element with
their identity ; what is exactly an element identity ?
