libxml2 alternatives


Hello!

I am still interested in XML programming. I want to use XML in my libraries.
Following this purpose I have crossed with the GNOME's tool libxml2. As far
as I understand it is a standard tool. The thing I would like to learn is
whether there are any other alternative utilities?

As the fact I even do not know if I need them at all. I want the maximum
portability of my libraries - it is the first. The second - I want it could
be used on a very old machines or servers - machines without graphical desktop.
So the fact that libxml2 is a GNOME's utility and GNOME is a desktop
environment forced me into the doubt. Also I would like my libraries were as
fast as it possible.

Will libxml2 fill the bill? Or something else?

Please help with an advise.

libxml2 isn't a tool, it's a library, and whilst developed in conjunction with Gnome, has no dependedncy on it whatsoever. It is used in a very large number of non-gnome applications and shouldn't be viewed as related to gnome in any way really.

Does it mean libxml2 is a thing I need?

I indeed search for a simple data storing implementation. There is no
powerfulness I want. Maybe there are any other libraries more light weight?

Thank you.

well libxml2 is a very popular xml programming interface.. if you want to do xml interfaces within a program, then go nuts.
