wxWidgets XML support
Never looked at it before. Their XML library is *very* good for doing tree type XML
work, not SAX processing.
Just look at this one function, and you know somebody good wrote it:
bool wxXmlNode::GetAttribute( const wxString& attrName, wxString* value ) const
1) it returns whether an attribute was found, true or false.
2) it uses wxString* rather than wxString& to receive the fetched value. This shows
up at the call site as
if( node->GetAttribute( name, &value ) )
I like that, it tells me to expect value to be modified at the call site because I
have to prefix it with &.
This library is as simple as possible, but not simpler. I give it an excellent rating.
Even has a virtual wxXmlNode::InsertChildAfter(). class wxXmlNode is excellent
excellent stuff for doing tree type XML work, not SAX processing.
