We have occasional battles here about the wisdom of using
non-XML-parser-based tools to process XML, and regular expressions always
seem to come up.
I've got a reader question that sort of ties into a (non-regex-based) Java
project I'm working on, about the viability of regex and other text-based
processing for XML work.
Has anyone written a generic XML parser, even a somewhat broken one, that's
built on regular expressions? I remember hearing of something a long while
ago, but I can't find it.
I'm not concerned with the efficiency/viability/profitability/wisdom of
such a solution, just whether or not it's been done - especially if it's
available open source.
