Native Dylan XML-parser library We present a native Dylan XML parser library. This parser comes with additional features. You may transform the internal representation to any form desired (XML, HTML, text, what-have-you). You may also extract elements that have a certain shape (e.g. "//dvd/title"). You may index into attributes or immediate child elements using Dylan syntax. And, you may output the XML to a stream, transformed or in its original state. Please read the code in collect.dylan and xml-test/ to see how to do both. Of course, this XML parser is very much a work in progress -- this library neither checks for validity nor for well-formedness; perhaps those checks won't be added for a long time to come. However, it is currently being used in production-quality commercial and non-commercial projects. xml-test/ converts an XML doc to an HTML-readable one with links to entities (if they have not be expanded-out in the resulting document). REQUIRED LIBRARIES ================== To compile the xml-parser sources and to create an executable using the xml-parser library, you will need the 'meta' library which has been included here as a git submodule. HISTORY ======= Chris Double started this effort, and he developed an initial, working, parser using the Dylan META library from David Lichteblau. He also developed the Dylan XML class hierarchy (along the lines of the DOM), and had an algorithm for parsing going. Andreas Bogk developed the META parse tree into (mostly full) compliance with the XML spec (BNF?). Doug Auclair offered suggestions for improvements to META, integrated Andreas' work with Chris', created some macros to ease the parsing effort, implemented the transform functionality and entities (both parsing and substituting), and fixed bugs.
