Re: [xml] Weird parser problem

OK --> send me the retard prize. I have (all these years) blindly traversed the tree looking for things by name and if I find them returning the node.

However ... I never checked the TYPE of the node.

There is a type XML_NODE_TEXT that just happens to have the name filled in with "text" and I was returning that node, which has no children, hence no children's type or content ...

A simple change on my part to skip those (what are they?) solved that problem.

Silly me, to think they YOUR code had bugs :-)

  No idea, everything seems to work here

paphio:~/XML -> xmllint tst.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
paphio:~/XML -> xmllint --shell tst.xml
/ > ls
---        1 text

  Specify what doesn't work and provide a reproductible test case please,
