   Re: [xml-dev] Automated ASCII to XML converter

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


Is the ASCII text is structured, such as EDI files will be, then you can
consider using xmlLinguist from SysOnyx Inc at
http://www.sysonyx.com/products/xmllinguist. The mapping GUI sells for
$79.95 and the automated engine (via a command line EXE or an ActiveX COM
object) is royalty free. It directly translates a flatfile into XML, and can
add hierarchy. Note that the translation is direct, meaning that there is no
changes to where fields are, lines, data itself, etc. If you need more
transformations, then apply a stylesheet. The engine is bi-directional, to
XML or to Text, depending on your needs.
