Re: [xml] why is htmlNewParserCtxt static?

the context.


Normally I would use xmlReadFile(), but that creates its own context and 
destroys it afterwards and doesn't give me a chance to put anything in 
_private. However, xmlCtxtReadFile() looks like just what I want, as it 
takes a context that I've already created with the appropriate stuff in 

On the HTMLparser side of things I can't do this, as htmlNewParserCtxt() 
is static and I can't call it. I want to call htmlCtxtReadFile(), but 
first I need to create a context, set the _private field and pass it in.

  Okay, makes sense, you need to be able to bootstrap htmlCtxtRead*()
Fixed in CVS !

  thanks :-)
