A quick question:
When I scan in a handwritten XML file, and there are mismatched tags --
it will throw an exception.
and the exception will contain a line number of the closing tag which
does not have a mate of the same kind.
Is there a way to get the line number of the earlier tag which caused
the XML parser to know the closing tag was mismatched, so I can narrow
down the location of the mismatches for a manual repair? (I don't want
auto-repair like beautiful soup. but google is worthless for finding a
And secondly, for times where I want to throw a software/content
specific error on valid XML files;
I don't see which attribute of an element, or method, allows me to find
out the line number and column number that an element I am examining is
? How do I get it ?
