Meanwhile I used the ``push''-method described on the xmlsoft-homepage
(``Invoking the parser'').
Is your method more efficient?

To tell the truth: I don't know.
I'm using the I/O parser context approach coz i've to use
customized read callbacks, so the "push"-method isn't an
option for me (AFAIK...)

I think it should be possible to retrieve the filedscriptor

  fd = fileno(filehdl);

and create an I/O-parsercontext

  ctxt = xmlCreateIOParserCtxt(NULL, NULL, readCallback, 
(void *) &fd, XML_CHAR_ENCODING_NONE);

(e.g.; see documentation for this...).
Then you can parse

  parseResult = xmlParseDocument(ctxt);

the document.

Hope that helps!

Mit freundlichen Gruessen - Kind regards
