Expat is small, fast, and stable -- it's getting a very heavy workout
in the Perl community (where it's the standard Perl XML parser), so
serious bugs tend to have been chased down, and it seems to operate
practically at I/O speed.
On the downside, Expat is C rather than C++, so the interface is a
little messy -- you might want to put together a C++ wrapper to help
avoid nastier bugs.
I have no experience yet with IBM4C++, but I do know that they have an
interface based on SAX as well as the DOM. It's very new, so expect
All the best,
