Instanciate a new SaxIndexMaker




Read what is to be caught and put into the index. xmlIndexMaker files follows the format

$sim->makeIndex($sourceFile, [$indexFile, [\%args]])

Opens $sourceFile and writes the index into $indexFile. $sourceFile is a normal valid xml.

$indexFile will look like the following example

%args can contain


So that the origSrc is saved instead of the given $sourceFile (think that the $sourceFile may bonly be a temporary gunziped file)


Print the index in a text format
