There is no way to pass a string to XML_Parser, such as a cached RSS feed from a database.  These diffs modify XML_Parser to accept strings in addition to the current URLs and existing resources, and XML_RSS to be able to pass a string to XML_Parser (backwards-compatibility is maintained as far as I can see).

I've applied your patches to CVS, but I'm leaving this bug report unclosed until we have rolled new releases.

Thanks for your help.

Should XML_RSS be dependent on the new version of XML_Parser?

Stephan Schmidt has pointed out that scripts would fail with a very large input file, as it is all read into memory.

I've fixed this problem and applied the diff to 1.6 (Martin's patch of Aug 23):
