       XML::LibXML::SAX - XML::LibXML direct SAX parser


       XML::LibXML provides an interface to libxml2 direct SAX interface. Through this interface
       it is possible to generate SAX events directly while parsing a document. While using the
       SAX parser XML::LibXML will not create a DOM Document tree.

       Such an interface is useful if very large XML documents have to be processed and no DOM
       functions are required. By using this interface it is possible to read data stored within
       an XML document directly into the application data structures without loading the document
       into memory.

       The SAX interface of XML::LibXML is based on the famous XML::SAX interface. It uses the
       generic interface as provided by XML::SAX::Base.

       Additionally to the generic functions, which are only able to process entire documents,
       XML::LibXML::SAX provides parse_chunk(). This method generates SAX events from well
       balanced data such as is often provided by databases.


       NOTE: This feature is experimental.

       You can enable character data joining which may yield a significant speed boost in your
       XML processing in lower markup ratio situations by enabling the feature of this parser. This is done via the
       set_feature method like this:

         $p->set_feature('', 1);

       You can also specify a 0 to disable. The default is to have this feature disabled.
