Hi Sebastian,

I get this:

Error: /root/vc.xml(1): xml parse error

I am running latest FC4 on x86_64. what platform are you using ?

I would think this is needed to query a configuration file with a normal
amount of settings

The steps to take in this specific case would be:

I would like to get a method to handle all value matches given a path

One can not afford to write code for a simple case like this. I am not
saying full XPath but probably the library is really incomplete if it can
not handle a basic scenario like this. Marcin, is this in the todo list ?

In many cases I want to use an external xml file as the configuration file
and then use a path query to get the results that I need as configuration
input. In this case I don't want to load the whole xml in a configuration
object but just the subset (I misunderstood the library as I quickly hacked
the debug_settings example and thought this was no brainer)
