Again excuse my newbie'ness (to XML) but, what about Xerces? It is the w3c's
very own, I think. It has both C++ and Perl APIs. The perl modules apparently
just gives you control over the C++ API from perl. It was just my small hunt
for XML APIs that lead me to it. I have been using xerces for Jxalan, to so
XSLT transforms. (Means you get XPath I believe, and DOM trees to play with)
That would save a lot on if depths. Again, though, my programming knowledge
is weak in C[++].
Also. Using LibXML, is a little naughty. The site says, something like.
""Unless you are foreced to do so by an old application linking against LibXML
you should NOT use it. Use LibXML2 instread.""
A side note about the V1->V2 XSLT. Do you think there is much point in
tracking done the few remaining problems? I have converted all my profiles,
and there are only one or two minor issues. The most serious is the multiple
configure/make/make install packages, but I think there are not very many of
those and it's easy fixed by hand. Ex: zlib. I don't think there are any in
the base system.
I'm off to see about CVS.
