Type XMLParser

 object --+    
_BaseParser --+

Known Subclasses:

The XML parser. Parsers can be supplied as additional argument to various parse functions of the lxml API. A default parser is always available and can be replaced by a call to the global function 'set_default_parser'. New parsers can be created at any time without a major run-time overhead.

The keyword arguments in the constructor are mainly based on the libxml2 parser configuration. A DTD will also be loaded if validation or attribute default values are requested.

Available boolean keyword arguments: * attribute_defaults - read default attributes from DTD * dtd_validation - validate (if DTD is available) * load_dtd - use DTD for parsing * no_network - prevent network access (default: True) * ns_clean - clean up redundant namespace declarations * recover - try hard to parse through broken XML * remove_blank_text - discard blank text nodes * remove_comments - discard comments * remove_pis - discard processing instructions * compact - safe memory for short text content (default: True) * resolve_entities - replace entities by their text value (default: True)

Note that you should avoid sharing parsers between threads. While this is not harmful, it is more efficient to use separate parsers. This does not apply to the default parser.
