import can't find xml.sax.saxlib from PyXML

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 in _xmlplus/sax.

I know that it worked before, but I can't tell what changed on the systems
during new installations of new python versions. I tried it with 2.3
(which worked before but somewhat surprisingly doesn't work any more) and
2.4 (where I never managed to make this work).

Does anyone have a hint what I could try?

Thanks,
Stefan

xml/__init__.py from python 2.4 contains:
_MINIMUM_XMLPLU S_VERSION = (0, 8, 4)
so currently Python 2.4 will always fall back to the
builtin xml module.

A quick fix would be to change this back to:
_MINIMUM_XMLPLU S_VERSION = (0, 8, 3)

(Or hope that a PyXML 0.8.4 will be released before
Python 2.4 final)

Bye,
Walter Dörwald

Hello all, I have a couple of questions related to module importing. 1) When I start my Python program with `python foo.py` instead of simply adding a interpreter comment on the first line and do `./foo.py`, some "local" imports fails, I guess because current working directory is different. Is CWD the only difference between running `python foo.py` and `./foo.py`? What is the recommended way? (I guess security is one aspect that can...

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

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,

I've tried to install the pyxml-package, available at http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/, both from source and using some hack on the win32-binary package available for python2.4, but without luck. After install the module xml.dom.ext.reader is not available, eventhough the folder, __init__py and everything is in place. Why? And could someone please make a win32-binary package of pyxml for python2.5? Thanks!
