CPLAT Adds XML Classes

A trial version is available of this cross-platform development framework that runs under MacOS7.5-MacOS9 and MacOSX/Carbon with Metrowerks CodeWarrior Pro 6 or Apple Project Builder (as well as under Windows). This version adds expat-based classes to support reading and writing of XML data from files or memory. A downloadable pdf from the developer states that "The parser feeds information to a set of classes that provides a stack mechanism for handling the different elements in the XML document." I'm not a C++ programmer, but I imagine that this may be of interest to Mac application developers who want to use that language to handle XML. (26 November 2000)
