REBOL [ Library: [ level: 'intermediate platform: 'all type: tool domain: [ai xml] tested-under: none support: none license: none see-also: none ] History: [ [0.1 04-mar-2007 "First version"] [0.2 05-mar-2007 "Minor modification"] [0.3 06-mar-2007 "Improvement of the xpath_rules. Thanks to Marco."] [0.4 08-mar-2007 "Modification to remove a small bug introduced in v0.3."] [1.0 10-mar-2007 "handle attributes and empty elements"] ] Title: "xpath.r" Date: 03-march-2007 File: %xpath.r Author: "Alban Gabillon" Version: 1.0 Purpose: { This script shows how to implement an XPath interpreter in Rebol/Prolog. This interpreter is not complete. It is only a kind of "Proof of Concept". It lacks some features. Currently it can parse a document containing elements, attributes and pcdata. In this script I see an xml document as a tree of UNTYPED nodes. Consequently, - all nodes are treated the same, In particular attributes of an element are seen as child nodes of that element - the syntax DOES NOT FOLLOW exactly the XPath syntax (See the EXAMPLES below to understand how it works). Note1: It could be perfectly possible to directly parse XML data instead of rebxml data but it would be more difficult to write the parse_doc function. A solution could be to adapt xml2rebxml so that it produces the db atomic facts.}] samplexml: { <movie> <title>Star Trek: Insurrection</title> <star sex="M" age="35">Patrick Stewart</star> <star sex="M" age="25">Brent Spiner</star> <theater opening_year="2005"> <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 opening_year="2006"> <theater-name>Bigscreen 1</theater-name> <showtime>19:30</showtime> <showtime/> <price>$6.00</price> </theater> <theater opening_year="2010" /> </movie> } examples: {EXAMPLES: For selecting the theaters ---------------------------------------------.
