Description : possibly the fastest validating XML parser in the world.
ReportLab are proud to present pyRXP version 0.9, the fastest validating
XML parser available for Python, and quite possibly anywhere :-).
RXP is a very fast validating XML parser written by Richard Tobin of the
University of Edinburgh. It complies fully with the W3C test suites
(although we have compiled it without Unicode support for the time
being). We would like to thank Richard Tobin and Henry Thompson of the
Language Technology Group for making this code available to the world.
pyRXP is a wrapper around this which constructs a lightweight in-memory
"tuple tree" in a single call. This structure is the lightest one we
could define in Python, and it is constructed entirely in C code,
resulting in unprecedented speed. It is a core part of ReportLab's
forthcoming XML toolkit, which aims to offer simple, fast and pythonic
tools for common XML processing tasks.
This is not a full DOM implementation, but we think it will do what 90%
of the people want, in 10% of the time. And with validation. Enjoy!
