Subject: Re: Lisp XML parser ? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/06/22 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Clint Hyde <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Erik Naggum must have written this by now if no on else has :) Thanks, but I have to disppoint you. I don't consider a parser to be very valuable by itself (even though they simplify some tasks), unless it can produce something close to a document structure that may be traversed with reasonable tools. There is no consensus on what an XML document means. The failure of the SGML community to realize that they need to deal with SGML documents the same way Lisp deals with source code/data also means that there will be no good agreement on any in-memory representation of SGML documents. (And DOM is an incredibly ridiculous misunderstanding of "object oriented technology".) #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
