   Re: [xml-dev] DTD parser in c#

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Technically, a DTD parser by itself is an anomaly. You really need an XML
document to go with it. Of course, you could use a SAX parser to get all of
the DTD declarations in a push style fashion-- i.e., the
System.Xml.XmlReader. Additionally the SAX.NET project just released a beta
[1] and I believe the expat parser is supported. In either case you need to
create a stub document that will drive the DTD parsing:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE foo SYSTEM "yourdtd.dtd">

Even if the document is not valid you will receive the event stream for all
of the DTD declarations.

All the best,
Jeff Rafter
