XML is a standard for building tag-based structured documents/data.
Here are some key points about libxml: Well, bugs or missing features are always possible, and I will make a point of fixing them in a timely fashion.
Check the following Then send the bug with associated information to reproduce it to the xml@list; if it's really libxml related I will approve it.
Please do not send mail to me directly, it makes things really hard to track and in some cases I am not the best person to answer a given question, ask on the list.
Do not send code, I won't debug it (but patches are really appreciated! Please note that with the current amount of virus and SPAM, sending mail to the list without being subscribed won't work.
There is *far too many bounces* (in the order of a thousand a day ! If your mail to the list bounced waiting for administrator approval, it is LOST !

The real fixes are: The first line specifies that it is an XML document and gives useful information about its encoding. However, if a tag is empty (no content), a single tag can serve as both the opening and closing tag if it ends with .
Then the rest of the document is a text format whose structure is specified by tags between brackets. XML can be applied successfully to a wide range of tasks, ranging from long term structured document maintenance (where it follows the steps of SGML) to simple data encoding mechanisms like configuration file formatting (glade), spreadsheets (gnumeric), or even shorter lived documents such as Web DAV where it is used to encode remote calls between a client and a server.
The precompiled Windows binaries made by Igor Zlatovic are available in the win32 directory.
Binary ports: Contributions: I do accept external contributions, especially if compiling on another platform, get in touch with the list to upload the package, wrappers for various languages have been provided, and can be found in the bindings section Libxml2 is also available from GIT: This release is both a bug fix release and also contains the early XML Schemas structures and datatypes code, beware, all interfaces are likely to change, there is huge holes, it is clearly a work in progress and don't even think of putting this code in a production system, it's actually not compiled in by default.
