PyXML and xml.dom

Dan
I'm writing a Python program that does some XML parsing, though nothing
heavy, and I want to avoid requiring the user to install additional
libraries like PyXML.

The documentation for my version of Python (2.3.5) mentions PyXML as an
additional library while discussing the DOM module
<http://www.python.org/doc/2.3.5/lib/module-xml.dom.html>. I don't seem
to have PyXML installed on my system, but:
import xml.dom.minidom
print xml.dom.minidom .xml.__doc__

[blah, blah]
The full PyXML package, available from http://pyxml.sf.net,
is installed.
[blah, blah]

Is PyXML now part of the Python distribution, or is it still an add-on?

despite clear warnings of death. Then liability lawyer Victor E.
Schwartz suggested adding a (false) warning of facial
disfigurement. According to Schwartz, "We haven't had a liability
claim since."

Parts of PyXML have been migrated into Python core since Python 2.0,
but there is still also a standalone PyXML package.,.

See:

Hi! I'm using PyXML 0.8.3 on a number of machines. When I now run import xml.sax.saxlib python touches both the python/xml/sax and python/site-packages/_xmlplus modules but not _xmlplus/sax (I see that from strace), and then only searches for saxlib in python/xml/sax, i.e. in stdlib. I therefore get an ImportError though saxlib exists...

Python itself provides parsers for xml and Dom support. So, if I install pyxml what additional advantage or features I will get in pyxml specially in minidom and parsers. Anyone, please provide a brirfing on this.

Hi, I have to say I am confused about the documentation on pyxml.sf.net. When I want to use DOM, I effectively am using a class called Sax2? ^^ I also have to catch SAXExceptions, which reside in xml.sax._exceptions. I thought DOM and SAX are two completely different things. Why is PyXML mixing them up like this? Thanks,
