Hi. I'm Paul from Malaysia and very keen in Python. I know that you're
the author of the current Python/XML HOWTO. Thanks very much for coming
up for this invaluable information.
Now, let's discuss my problem. I have difficulty understanding certain
part of the document. For example, I can't execute the "from xml.sax
import saxlib, saxexts" coz I don't have the xml.sax module. But anyway,
i manage to download those components separately. The earlier code become
"import saxlib, saxexts". Did I solve the problem? FYI, I'm having Python
1.52 final release.
Another problem that I came across is that in Section 3.1 Starting Out. I
don't seem to run the example. This is what I do..
if __name__ = '__main__':
parser = saxexts.make_parser('drv_xmllib') # 1
dh = FindIssue ('Sandman', '62') # 2
parser.setDocumentHandler(dh) # 3
parser.parseFile('collection.xml') # 4
Now, in the # 1, I got error when I followed your example. Therefore, I
include a parameter (a driver)
Next in # 4, I got problem again. In your example, your parameter is a
file. What is the 'file' represents? I thought it was a xml file but it
I'll appreciate your advice in any format possible. Thanks a lot. Let's
keep Python ALIVE!!
