Hi Lars,

Thanks a lot, it's perfect, xmerl_sax_parser:file/2 does what I'm
looking for, as it prints the error on stdout like :

Config Error, aborting ! {{badmatch,
                              {<<"<transaction name=\"num\">\n
                              <request subst=\"true\"> \n        <http
                              method=\"GET\" version=\"1.1\" ></http>\n
                              </request>\n\n      <if var=\"number\"
                              eq=\"8\">\n        <request
                              subst=\"true\"> \n          <!-- not
                              closed -->\n          <http
                              method=\"GET\" version=\"1.1\" >\n
                              </request>\n      </if>\n\n    </transaction>">>,

It'll help a lot to debug.
