SGML Parser

**	(c) COPYRIGHT MIT 1995.

The SGML parser is a state machine. It is called for every character of the input stream. The DTD data structure contains pointers to functions which are called to implement the actual effect of the text read. When these functions are called, the attribute structures pointed to by the DTD are valid, and the function is parsed a pointer to the curent tag structure, and an "element stack" which represents the state of nesting within SGML elements. See also the the generic Stream definition

The following aspects are from Dan Connolly's suggestions: Binary search, Strcutured object scheme basically, SGML content enum type.

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

#ifndef SGML_H
#define SGML_H

#include "HTStream.h"
#include "HTStruct.h"

SGML Content Types

typedef enum _SGMLContent{
    SGML_EMPTY,    	/* no content */
    SGML_LITERAL, 	/* character data. Recognized exact close tag only.
  		    	   Old www server compatibility only! Not SGML */
    SGML_CDATA,    	/* character data. recognize </ only */
    SGML_RCDATA,   	/* replaceable character data. recognize </ and &ref; */
    SGML_MIXED,    	/* elements and parsed character data. recognize all markup */
    SGML_ELEMENT   	/* any data found will be returned as an error*/
} SGMLContent;

Attribute Types

Describes the SGML tag attribute

typedef struct _HTAttr {
    char *	name;		/* The (constant) name of the attribute */
    				/* Could put type info in here */
} HTAttr;

extern char * HTAttr_name (HTAttr * attr);

Tag Structure Describing SGML Elements

is the string which comes after the tag opener "<".
points to a zero-terminated array of attribute names.
determines how the SGML engine parses the charaters within the element. If set, tag openers are ignored except for that which opens a matching closing tag.
typedef struct _HTTag {
    char *      name;			/* The name of the tag */
    HTAttr *	attributes;		/* The list of acceptable attributes */
    int		number_of_attributes;	/* Number of possible attributes */
    SGMLContent contents;		/* End only on end tag @@ */		
} HTTag;

extern char * HTTag_name (HTTag * tag);
extern SGMLContent HTTag_content (HTTag * tag);
extern int HTTag_attributes (HTTag * tag);
extern char * HTTag_attributeName (HTTag * tag, int attribute_number);

DTD Information

Not the whole DTD, but all this parser uses of it.

#define MAX_ATTRIBUTES 32	     /* Max number of attributes per element */

typedef struct {
    HTTag *		tags;		/* Must be in strcmp order by name */ 
    int			number_of_tags;
    const char **	entity_names;	/* Must be in strcmp order by name */
    int			number_of_entities;
} SGML_dtd;

extern HTTag * SGML_findTag (SGML_dtd * dtd, int element_number);
extern char * SGML_findTagName (SGML_dtd * dtd, int element_number);
extern SGMLContent SGML_findTagContents (SGML_dtd * dtd, int element_number);
extern int SGML_findElementNumber(SGML_dtd *dtd, char *name_element);

Create an SGML Parser Instance

Create an SGML parser instance which converts a stream to a structured stream.

extern HTStream * SGML_new (const SGML_dtd * 	dtd,
			    HTStructured *	target);
#endif	/* SGML_H */
