[REBOL] Re: generating XML ?

From: cybarite:sympatico:ca at: 15-Jun-2002 8:12

In the rebol script library pick the table entry "HTML/XML Related" there is an entry XMLGEN.r dated 4-Jun-1999 which takes a REBOL block structure like example: [ movie [ title "Star Trek: Insurrection" star "Patrick Stewart" "Brent Spiner" theater [ theater-name "MonoPlex 2000" showtime 14:15 16:30 18:45 21:00 price [ adult $8.50 child $5.00 ] ] theater [ theater-name "Bigscreen 1" showtime 19:30 price $6.00 ] ] ] and generates XML from it <movie> <title>Star Trek: Insurrection</title> <star>Patrick Stewart</star> <star>Brent Spiner</star> <theater> <theater-name>MonoPlex 2000</theater-name> <showtime>14:15</showtime> <showtime>16:30</showtime> <showtime>18:45</showtime> <showtime>21:00</showtime> <price> <adult>$8.50</adult> <child>$5.00</child> </price> </theater> <theater> <theater-name>Bigscreen 1</theater-name> <showtime>19:30</showtime> <price>$6.00</price> </theater> </movie> which you may find adequate. I don't think it will compete with what Andrew is offering but might be a gentle start on what you need to accomplish. I used it when I needed just to get some sample XML structures out for discussion and was able to change the REBOL structure more easily then the XML. It is just freeing you from the <start long tag>....</end long tag> tedium ... but that may be what you are after. No reply is needed either way.
