;;; Commentary:
;; This file contains a full XML parser. It parses a file, and returns a list
;; that can be used internally by any other lisp file.
;; See some example in todo.el
;; It does not parse the DTD, if present in the XML file, but knows how to
;; ignore it. The XML file is assumed to be well-formed. In case of error, the
;; parsing stops and the XML file is shown where the parsing stopped.
;; It also knows how to ignore comments, as well as the special ?xml? tag
;; in the XML file.
;; The XML file should have the following format:
;; <node1 attr1="name1" attr2="name2" ...> value
;; <node2 attr3="name3" attr4="name4"> value2 </node2>
;; <node3 attr5="name5" attr6="name6"> value3 </node3>
;; </node1>
;; Of course, the name of the nodes and attributes can be anything. There can
;; be any number of attributes (or none), as well as any number of children
;; below the nodes.
;; There can be only top level node, but with any number of children below.
;; The functions `xml-parse-file' and `xml-parse-tag' return a list with
;; the following format:
;; xml-list ::= (node node ...)
;; node ::= (tag_name attribute-list . child_node_list)
;; child_node_list ::= child_node child_node ...
;; child_node ::= node | string
;; tag_name ::= string
;; attribute_list ::= (("attribute" . "value") ("attribute" . "value") ...)
;; | nil
;; string ::= "..."
;; Since XML is case insensitive, tag_name is always converted to lower-cases.
;; tag_name is then converted to a symbol (this is not a string, so that the
;; list takes less space in memory and is faster to traverse).
;; Some macros are provided to ease the parsing of this list
;;; Code:
;;** Macros to parse the list
(defmacro xml-node-name (node)
"Return the tag associated with NODE.
