<URL:>.  The "eg"
directory contains examples of its use, which are partly incomplete;
discussion of the module can be found on xml-perl, hosted by
ActiveState (<URL:>).

It's a bit old; it uses xmltok instead of Expat.  Larry's been working
on Unicode support instead, and says that he's pretty much done with
that and will be coming back to XML::Parser.

It seems to work pretty well, though out of the box it will only build
correctly if `ar` implies `ranlib` on your system (e.g., Solaris,
Linux).  If not (e.g., FreeBSD), run `ranlib` manually on libxmltok.a.
If you're on Windows, you have to get the Cygnus tools, or wait for
ActiveState to come out with a binary.
