because of abolute no memory left .. the system freezes, and I have to reset it.

The symtoms of having strange errors occured on older versions of xerces and linux
and are not reproducable on my current system.

You should test it on your own.. mayby this litte perl script helps on generating
large XML-Files.

use strict;
my @cnt = ( 1,3, 100, 200, 5000, 10000, 20000, 40000, 50000, 60000,80000, 100000,200000,400000,800000);

my $baseName=shift;

open FF,"$baseName.header"; my @headerLines=<FF>; close FF;
open FF,"$baseName.entry"; my @contentLines=<FF>;close FF;
open FF,"$baseName.footer";my @footerLines=<FF>;close FF;

foreach my $entryCnt (@cnt) {
    my $fname = sprintf("$baseName.%d.xml",$entryCnt);
    print "Building: $fname\n";
    my $fout;
    open($fout, ">$fname");
    print $fout  @headerLines;
    for(my $i=0; $i<$entryCnt;$i++) {
        print $fout @contentLines;
    print $fout  @footerLines;

Betreff: RE: Limitation of file size with DOM
Thanks Jason and Martin for the replies,
I am now confused with the contradictory experiences of both of you.
Is it possible to let me know the xerces version, OS, kernel version
etc., on which you have seen this.
I just wanted to understand the scenario where it worked (for Jason) and
it dint work (for Martin)

Thanks again,

I've used Xerces to parse file sizes in the 500Mb range...

The only limitation I had was on the memory of the machine...

Cheers, jas.

I tested parsing large files. The memory consumption was aprox. 7 to 10
times of the XML-File-Size (pretty printed). But there was at least a
limit on the size of the XML-File (aprox. 250Mb) where the xerces (2.6)
bounces with strange errors.. and there *was* still some RAM left :-(
(tested on linux). So I was forced to switch to SAX.
