 Perl Parser Performance

"There was one dominant XML parser in Perl a few years ago; parsing an XML document was synonymous for using the XML::Parser module. The module written by Larry Wall and Clark Cooper worked as an interface to James Clark's expat XML parser, and it didn't leave much room for competitors. Traditional Perl modules for XML processing were built on the top of XML::Parser. But times are changing. Other C/C++ parsers, such as libxml2 or Xerces C++ have entered the scene, and so have their Perl extensions. Perl XML folks have developed Perl SAX, a Perlish counterpart of Java SAX interface."
