[XML-SIG] DOM performance?
Sat, 08 Jun 2002 09:31:25 -0400
I've been meaning to learn Python for ages and I've finally found the
project that I'm going to use to do so: a little UI thingy with an XML
back end. Ok. so I grabbed PyXML 0.7.1 and installed it on my Linux
box where I've got Python 2.1.
Running a little test program to build a DOM tree (baby steps, to be sure):
from xml.dom.ext.reader import Sax2
# create Reader object
reader = Sax2.Reader()
print "parse it!"
# parse the document
doc = reader.fromStream(sys.stdin)
I'm concerned about the performance. For a small XML document it works
fine, but for the actual 1.4Mb XML document I need to read for my
project, performance is abysmal (after several minutes, I gave up).
Am I doing something obviously wrong?
