Hi. My OS is Win2K, and I'm having trouble using the XML::LibXML Perl module. When I run the following

...Following the instructions in the README file, I placed the contents of the lib and util folders of each

XML::LibXML::Common, XML::NamespaceSupport, XML::NodeFilter, XML::Parser, and XML::SAX modules installed.

I've read through several months of threads from this mailing list archive, searched manpages, documentation, 
and websites looking for information on this, but to no avail. I admit I'm not an expert, and I'm new to this 
mailing list, so if I'm asking a novice question in the wrong forum, please kindly guide me to the right 
mailing list or forum and I'll post my request for help there.

Thank you for any guidance you'd be kind enough to offer.


Hi Matt,

Your Perl module is compiled using libxml2 version 2.5.6 or lower. The symbol it seeks is there, but called __xmlIndentTreeOutput. This is due to the fact that version 2.5.8 has thread support enabled.

You must either get libxml2 version 2.5.6 or older, or you must rebuild the Perl module with the newer version.
