You can either:
- loop with for all values of 0 .. AttributeCount() - 1
  and use MoveToAttributeNo(no) then use Name()/Prefix()/NamespaceUri()...
- or use MoveToNextAttribute()
  and similary use Name()/Prefix()/NamespaceUri()

the small Python example in that doc shows the second one.

I did not design this API, this is directly copied from C# xmlReader API.
However, I don't know a way to acquire a pointer to the first attribute 

  You don't need to.
  Read my answer you have the solution you asked, just in front of you.


Finally figured out what I was doing wrong...

I was trying to use:
name = xmlTextReaderName(reader);
value = xmlTextReaderGetAttribute(reader, name);

Apparently, those can't be used together?  If I got one to work, the other never did... as if I was in the wrong place on the stream or something.  I think I got off track with the xmlTextReaderGetAttribute function from the page:

I eventually tried xmlTextReaderValue(reader) and all was well.
thx for the help-
