Um, yeah --- me. Not sure if this is before or after Paul...


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.

Subject: Tonight's talks

G'day everyone,

Just a reminder that Perl Mongers is on tonight.  Our current agenda seems to be:

	Paul:  Perl Security - "Working securely with files"
	Scott: YAPC Update
	??:    ??

If you've volunteered a talk which I've missed then we're delighted to have you present as well.  Paul says someone did, but I can't find your email, sorry.

So, we'll look forward to seeing you all at MyInternet House, Blackwood St, North Melbourne at 6:30pm.

All the very best,
