I'm using the parser routines in a multi-threaded appln. The
xmlInitParser() is called in the main() program and the
xmlCleanUpParser() routine is called after the parsing is done(in, say,
getXmlInfo()). Now, if 2 or more threads invoke the getXmlInfo()
simultaneously, would there be any problems when they call the
xmlCleanUpParser() i.e. what care has to be taken for multi-threaded

  xmlCleanUpParser() should be called only once, once your application
have finished using libxml2 (and libxslt). If you can't garantee this,
don't call it.
