0. Introduction

xmlwrapp is a modern style C++ library for working with XML data, built atop
the venerable libxml2 C library.

Additional resources, bug reports, latest sources etc. can be found on the

1. Requirements

In order to build xmlwrapp, you need libxml2 version 2.4.28 or newer. When
building with XSLT support, libxslt 1.1.6 or newer is required. Both libraries
are available from

Header-only Boost Pool library is also required for building xmlwrapp.

To run tests, Boost.Iostreams and Boost.Test libraries are also needed.

2. Building on Unix

On Unix, the usual Autotools-based build system is used. Building xmlwrapp is
usually as simple as running the following three commands:

  make install

See the output of `./configure --help` for additional settings and options.

Use `--disable-tests` option to skip running tests and avoid the need for
installing Boost.Iostreams and Test libraries.

3. Building on Windows

At this time, only building with Visual C++ compiler is supported. The required
project files are located in platform/Win32 directory. You will need libxml
and libxslt libraries built for Windows, e.g. the binaries from

4. Using xmlwrapp

On Unix, you should use pkg-config to get compiler flags for xmlwrapp or
xsltwrapp libraries:

   c++ -c `pkg-config --cflags xmlwrapp` ...
   c++ -o ... `pkg-config --libs xmlwrapp`

On Windows, you need to link against xmlwrapp libraries and add the include/
directory to compiler's headers search path.
