   RE: [xml-dev] XML too hard for programmers?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Regarding Tim's comments, I was wondering if anybody had good examples
of the sort of XML processing that Tim is talking about.

I wrote some processors to deal with the dmoz.org RDF files, and found
that streaming XML processing wasn't trivial, but that with sufficient
tool support, it wasn't bad at all.

But I thought I'd ask the community if anybody had good examples
of this.

Basically, I think that with a sufficient library of examples, in the
form of a set of inputs, a program which processes them, and a
complaint about why the program is uglier than it should be, a
developer could go off and try to improve the situation.

The larger the library, the better-informed that developer would be.

Me, I have a lot of RDF stuff.  But RDF/XML is itself rather weird and
crufty, in ways which far surpass XML, so that's not a good example.
