Libxml: handling parse errors



I found the libxml API very nice, so I started using it.

When I try to open a non-well-formed xml, two things happen:

  • errors are displayed on screen (stderr)
  • exception raises

Well, I would like to catch the error messages instead of displaying
them. After reading the documentation, all my ideas faded away (except
hacking stderr which is not I want to do).

Could you help please?

We have a (contributed) patch that addresses this (allows an error proc
to be used) that will certainly make the next libxml-ruby release. I
won’t post it here since it’s yet to be merged with the new code.
