   RE: [xml-dev] XML-aware programming language?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Can you give me the input XML and expected output so I can see whether XQuery really takes 4 times less code than E4X or C-Omega? In fact, I have an article due this month and that would be an interesting topic to cover. 
There is nothing more satisfying that having someone take a shot at you, and miss.

Hi Dare,

For the examples I've compared, I wind up writing about 4 times as much
code using that approach, and it definitely takes more time to write and
maintain that code.
