   Parsing efficiency? - why not 'compile'????

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi There,

Why parse repeatedly, if it's so damned inefficient? Why not come up with
the concept of a 'compiled' xml document; one where structural info. is
stored, and access is *FAST*, and validity and well-formedness have already
been 'certified'? No-one's surprised that interpretive languages are
execution dogs compared to compiled versions (because of no on-going
parsing!), so why the mock horror that interpretive XML is so inefficient?
