This module is implemented by HTXML.c, and is a part of the W3C Sample Code Library.

We use James Clark's expat XML parser which is very neat indeed. As the code doesn't come as a separate library, I included it in the libwww CVS code base where I compile is as two libraries: libxmltok.a and libxmlparse.a. See the external modules that libwww works with for details. Thanks so much to John Punin for writing this code!

Libwww Stream Converter

This stream is a libwww converter which calls and creates a expat stream instance. In order to tell the application that a new stream instance has been created.

extern HTConverter HTXML_new;

Callback Handler Announcing a new Expat Stream object

When a libwww to expat XML stream converter instance is created, the stream checks to see if there are any callbacks registered which should be notified about the new stream instance. If that is the case then this callback is called and a pointer to the XML parser passed along. The output stream is the target that was originally set for the request object before the request was issued.

typedef void HTXMLCallback_new (
	HTStream *		me,
	HTRequest *		request,
	HTFormat 		target_format,
	HTStream *		target_stream,
	XML_Parser              xmlparser,
	void *                  context);

Register Creation notification Callback

@@@Should be handled via XML names spaces@@@
extern BOOL HTXMLCallback_registerNew (HTXMLCallback_new *, void * context);

XML Expat Stream to Libwww Structured Stream

This is a stream that converts from the expat stream to a libwww structured stream. Again, the application can

#ifdef HT_STRUCT_XML_STREAM
extern BOOL HTXMLStructured_setHandlers(
	HTStream *			me,
	XML_StartElementHandler		start,
	XML_EndElementHandler		end, 
	XML_CharacterDataHandler	char_data,
	XML_DefaultHandler		def_handler);

extern BOOL HTXMLStructured_setUserData (HTStream * me, void * user_data);
extern HTStream * HTXMLStructured_new (const SGML_dtd * dtd, HTStructured *
starget);
#endif
#endif
