My problem with XML-QL was their use of tag minimisation (their proprietary
</> syntax) means you can't parse XML-QL with an XML parser. That's foolish
IMHO - if you're practically using XML already, why not reap the benefits?
Anyway, there's an implementation of XML-QL in my directory on CPAN for perl
users, which needs fixing up a little bit, but it's quite usable (if a
little slow). It facilitates the use of perl's regexp syntax for queries as
well as the system used by XML-QL, which makes it nice and powerful...
