[XML-SIG] PyXML newbie problem
Sun, 29 Dec 2002 15:02:27 +0100
Python newbie here, trying to get started with XML processing in
Python. I'm using MacOS X 10.2, which I gathered hasn't got PyXML
installed by default. Therefore I downloaded the latest version (0.8.1)
of PyXML and attempted a build+install. All appeared to go reasonably
well, but I can't quite get it to work.
Here's a simple examlple I tried in the interpreter:
from xml.dom import minidom
doc = minidom.parse('/Library/WebServer/Documents/books.xml')
This yields the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "xml/dom/minidom.py", line 1594, in parse
from xml.dom import expatbuilder
File "xml/dom/expatbuilder.py", line 32, in ?
from xml.parsers import expat
File "xml/parsers/expat.py", line 4, in ?
from pyexpat import *
ImportError: No module named pyexpat
So it appears something wasn't installed properly after all? Any
pointers would be greatly appreciated.
