I've got a hunch that what he really wanted to do was "pull" the higher-level somethings rather than have them "pushed" at him, i.e. call a function to get the next something rather than have the parser make a callback, presumably because he needs to maintain some state and he'd like to do it via flow-of-control rather than setting and testing state variables. If that's the case, he'd be better off building a wrapper that would feed the input incrementally to expat and buffer up events, with the whole thing driven by a "get next token" function that would return something similar to a line of ESIS data. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
