There's an article of mine on:

That compares the performance of 6 XML parsers using 4 languages:

 1) James Clark's Expat		(C)
 2) Richard Tobin's RXP		(C)
 3) James Clark's XP		(Java)
 4) IBM's XML4J			(Java)
 5) My XML::Parser		(Perl)
 6) Jack Jansen's Pyexpat	(Python)

The same program is implemented in each language and using each parser
and then compared with different test cases in the same environment.

Please check it out and critique as necessary.
