You can use XML-SAX to parse it.

Subject: XML with 8 levels of multi-occurring segments

I have the following XML file to process -

<LOADHDR> single
<LOADSTOP> single
<ORDERS> multiple
<Field 1>
<STORER> single
<PACKIDH> single
<PACKIDD> multiple
<Field 2>
<SKU> multiple
<Field 3>
<ORDERDETAIL> multiple
<PICKDETAIL> multiple

I'm trying to read this into a data structure and with the nested multiple occurring segments it is too big to compile. I'm relatively new to XML processing and I'm hoping there's another method to consuming the XML file besides just reading it into a DS with nested arrays.
