Re: XML should NOT be a new programming language
[Mike Champion] > There are parsers that take non-angle-bracket syntax and generate SAX events > (I can't point to any offhand) I'm sure many people on this list have done this. I've got a little system that uses an indented format inspired by Python formatting - something like YAML, it turns out, but a bit different. I wrote a Python parser that throws SAX events and have a writer that can output xml. It's a great way to whip up a modest amount of xml by hand, and it's very readable, you can see the structure more easily (it can't capture all xml constructions, but I don't care). It would be interesting to learn what other kinds of non-xml SAX generators people have written. Anyone care to say? Cheers, Tom P
