XML::SAX consists of several framework classes for using and
building Perl SAX2 XML parsers, filters, and drivers.  It is designed
around the need to be able to "plug in" different SAX parsers to an
application without requiring programmer intervention.  Those of you
familiar with the DBI will be right at home.  Some of the designs
come from the Java JAXP specification (SAX part), only without the
The package also contains a SAX parser, XML::SAX::PurePerl, but it
is considered too slow for serious use and is only provided as a
fallback parser. It is recommend XML::SAX::Expat (provided in
libxml-sax-expat-perl) instead.
The framework includes a Debian-specific script (called
update-perl-sax-parsers) to manage the ParserDetails.ini file. This
script is intended to be used in postinst and prerm package scripts to
(de)register parsers.  See README.Debian for more info.

[ Ansgar Burchardt ]
* Move Debian-specific functions to a subclass as suggested by Evan Carroll.
If XML::SAX is installed via CPAN, it will not see the ParserDetails.ini
in /etc/perl/XML/SAX, ie. users will have to enable additional parsers by
hand or install them via CPAN as well. (LP: #13917)
