19.10. xml.dom.pulldom — Support for building partial DOM trees

New in version 2.0.

Source code: Lib/xml/dom/pulldom.py

xml.dom.pulldom allows building only selected portions of a Document Object Model representation of a document from SAX events.


The xml.dom.pulldom module is not secure against maliciously constructed data. If you need to parse untrusted or unauthenticated data see XML vulnerabilities.

class xml.dom.pulldom.PullDOM([documentFactory])

xml.sax.handler.ContentHandler implementation that …

class xml.dom.pulldom.DOMEventStream(stream, parser, bufsize)

class xml.dom.pulldom.SAX2DOM([documentFactory])

xml.sax.handler.ContentHandler implementation that …

xml.dom.pulldom.parse(stream_or_string[, parser[, bufsize]])

xml.dom.pulldom.parseString(string[, parser])


Default value for the bufsize parameter to parse().

Changed in version 2.1: The value of this variable can be changed before calling parse() and the new value will take effect.
