libxml - library used to parse XML files
The libxml library is used to parse XML files. Its internal document repesentation is as
close as possible to the DOM (Document Object Model) interface, an API for accessing XML
or HTML structured documents.
The libxml library also has a SAX-like interface, which is designed to be compatible with
that of another XML parser library called expat. NOTE: SAX, the Simple API for XML, is a
standard interface for event-based XML parsing, developed collaboratively by the members
of the XML-DEV mailing list, currently hosted by OASIS. The expat library is a XML 1.0
parser written in C, which aims to be fully conforming. It is currently not a validating
The libxml library now includes a nearly complete XPath implementation. The XPath (XML
Path Language) is a language for addressing parts of an XML document, designed to be used
by both XSLT and XPointer.
The libxml library exports Push and Pull type parser interfaces for both XML and html.
