I meant that there is an awful lot of this stuff.

If it is this element/attribute name then
else if it is this name and I'm in this structure ... type of stuff.

Not to mention having to handle multiple data events for each element/attribute handle white spec characters etc. etc.

I find XML-INTO just so much less work. Just code a DS and bingo! (Well "Just" can sometimes be a pain but ...).

It was said earlier that XML-SAX is a lot of work. I don't get that.
XML-SAX is easy, to me at lot easier than trying to use XML-INTO and you
don't have to sweat memory. You only need enough to store one record (I
don't know what you are doing with records. Processing everything for an
order and then writing to disk?).

Anyway, I would be happy to send you an example program I wrote that uses
XML-SAX.

Even a single instance of an Order won't fit? Surely it can't be that

<ORDERS> will not fit into 16mb and that's my main issue right now. How
can I define the data structure to be less than 16mb or do I need to use
some other technique?

You could use XML-SAX - but that's a lot of work unless you only want a
few fields.

In this case you should be able to do it with XML-INTO and the %Handler
option. As long as the size of one <ORDERS> will fit into 16Mb it should
work just fine.

If you need more help in understanding how that would work just holler.

I have the following XML file to process -

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

Thanks,
