RE: [xml] question about multi-threaded-ness of libxml2


Thanx for the speedy response.  I have two more questions:

1.  I am in doubt as to what xmlCleanupParser() is cleaning up and I would 
prefer not to call it.  My concern then would be how to get cleanup the global memory that the parser used.

2.  I noticed that there is a compile time flag called "LIBXML_THREAD_ENABLED".  Do I need to compile the 
libxml2 libraries with this flag to ensure MT saft-ness?

  Call xmlInitParser() once before starting multithreaded operations.
Call xmlCleanupParser() only once if your program ends up not using the
libxml2 library anymore, in doubt do not call xmlCleanupParser() ever.
  Lots of people are using libxml2 in threaded environments, it should
