[REBOL] Re: markup datatype

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 3-Nov-2003 9:05

Hi Brett, BH> From what I see his example treats the xml strings as a tree of nodes and BH> attibutes with fairly simple operations applied to the trees. I would expect BH> it to be feasible and not too difficult to program as a dialect in REBOL. BH> The language part would be the easy bit for REBOL, the choice of underlying BH> representation supporting flexible and fast operations is the the trickier BH> part - had already been thinking about it. ;-) I agree. The issue I see is one of completeness. It's easy to look at a simple example and have it make sense, but when you start looking at real, complex, documents and the whole depth and breadth of XML and such, you could end up with a real mess from a specification point of view. The first steps shouldn't be hard though. Just deal with basic, well-formed, XML and ignore the rest. :) -- Gregg
