Great, thanks.

Whoa!! Check your symbolic links. Here's what mine are:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 jasons   jasons         60 2003-06-06 03:56 libxerces-c.so -> /home/jasons/build/xerces-c-src_2_3_0//lib/libxerces-c.so.23
lrwxrwxrwx    1 jasons   jasons         62 2003-06-06 03:56 libxerces-c.so.23 -> /home/jasons/build/xerces-c-src_2_3_0//lib/libxerces-c.so.23.0
-rwxr-xr-x    1 jasons   jasons   18161188 2003-06-06 03:56 libxerces-c.so.23.0

The real library is libxerces-c.so.23.0, try running 'nm -C' on it
instead. If that *still* shows no result, then I'm royally confused,
because there's no conditional code around the isAnySlash() method.

One of the ways is for me to simply tell SWIG to *not* provide this
method - after all it's completely useless to Perl - it's only used by
the underlying C++ layer. My standard policy is to only expose C++ API
methods if they're useful to Perl programmers. I can release 2.3.0-2
that will fix this, but I'm concerned that there is a deeper problem
going on.

Do this:

in Xerces.pm, comment out the isAnySlash definition (line 477):

   *isAnySlash = *XML::Xercesc::XMLPlatformUtils_isAnySlash;

in Xerces.C,

  - comment out the _wrap_XMLPlatformUtils_isAnySlash code (from
    line 2997 to line 3031) 
  - comment out the _wrap_XMLPlatformUtils_isAnySlash definition (line

You can also delete them if you want. I've done this and it compiles
and runs for me. Let me know if this fixes your problem. If so, I'll
release a new version.

Yes, I was never really able to make a connection at UNM - I was
hoping to be helpful to folks out there with MGED/MAGE and Genex, but
it never materialized. Then I got an opportunity to do bioinformatics
development out here in Bangalore, so I took the kids on an adventure!
