	Leif: XML SAX or DOM ?

XML development typically proceeds down one of the two main paradigms 
of XML processing - SAX or DOM. Each paradigm brings with it different 
design strengths and weakness, and requires a developer to know which 
approach matches best with the requirements in hand.

This talk shows two Perl implementations of the same set of 
requirements - one using the DOM paradigm, using XML::Simple, and the 
other using the SAX paradigm, using XML::Parser. The differences in 
code structure are striking, and the problem areas for each approach 
are quiet distinct.

Hopefully Perl developers will come away from this talk ( and code 
walk-through ) with a better understanding of when to commit to a 
particular paradigm at the start of a project.
