RE: XML too hard for programmers?
Regarding Tim's comments, I was wondering if anybody had good examples of the sort of XML processing that Tim is talking about. I wrote some processors to deal with the dmoz.org RDF files, and found that streaming XML processing wasn't trivial, but that with sufficient tool support, it wasn't bad at all. But I thought I'd ask the community if anybody had good examples of this. Basically, I think that with a sufficient library of examples, in the form of a set of inputs, a program which processes them, and a complaint about why the program is uglier than it should be, a developer could go off and try to improve the situation. The larger the library, the better-informed that developer would be. Me, I have a lot of RDF stuff. But RDF/XML is itself rather weird and crufty, in ways which far surpass XML, so that's not a good example. --chet--
