libxml - library used to parse XML files


   The  libxml  library is used to parse XML files.  Its internal document
   representation is as close as possible  to  the  DOM  (Document  Object
   Model)   interface,  an  API  for  accessing  XML  or  HTML  structured

   The libxml library also has a SAX-like interface, which is designed  to
   be  compatible  with expat(1).  NOTE: SAX, the Simple API for XML, is a
   standard   interface   for   event-based   XML    parsing,    developed
   collaboratively  by  the members of the XML-DEV mailing list, currently
   hosted by OASIS.  The expat library is a XML 1.0 parser written  in  C,
   which  aims  to  be fully conforming.  It is currently not a validating
   XML processor.

   The libxml library now includes a nearly complete XPath implementation.
   The  XPath (XML Path Language) is a language for addressing parts of an
   XML document, designed to be used by both XSLT and XPointer.

   The libxml library exports Push and Pull  type  parser  interfaces  for
   both XML and html.
