In the case of and big.xml, the contents of the root element were just repeated, 8 and 32 times respectively.
While some of them have a validating mode, all the parsers were run as non-validating parsers.
Some of the parsers wanted it to be there if you declared it, even in non-validating mode.
The other documents are mechanically expanded versions of
Only a single parser is tested for Perl and Python, but two parsers each are tested for C and Java.
All of these parsers run under Linux, and all are stream-oriented.
