EXPath file module and BOM markers

Dear all,

a new version of the File Module is online:

    http://files.basex.org/modules/expath/file/file-120614.html

I've just returned to my uncompleted implementation and test suite for this module (the test suite is a lot more work than the implementation...).

I'm hitting problems knowing what to do about BOMs. Under what circumstances should a BOM be written?
Should they be used only with UTF-16, or also with UTF-8?
Should they be written only at the start of the file (i.e. append-X functions have to check whether the file is empty in order to decide whether to write a BOM?)

First Steps?

Hi all,

I’m glad to see that EXPath is regaining momentum! Do we already know how we can further proceed from here? Maybe we could start with a little survey to find out which of the existing EXPath modules are currently used, and which may need to be revised.

I am writing this because, a few weeks ago, I have discussed an alternative ZIP module with Matthias Brantner. As you may remember, Philip Fearon, who specified the existing ZIP proposal, has no more time to work on new versions of the existing EXPath ZIP module (which we have already implemented in BaseX, but which has rarely been used until now). So I am wondering who has already worked with the ZIP module, and what are your experiences.. And the same accounts for the other EXPath modules.

Your comments?
