Re: [xml] using xmlSetExternalEntityLoader to return internally generated XML documents

Looking at the source, it seems that I have to serialise my xml document so that libxml can parse it again, is that right, seems like a bit of a waste of time, though I guess for some situations at least (xinclude) if xmlSetExternalEntityLoader could accept an xmlDoc, the xmlDoc would have to be copied so maybe it is not that much more overhead.

I have a lot of XML documents that are generated using the tree API  or the XSLT API and I want to be able to refer to them in other XML  document within LIBXML2 through URL's (xincludes, xslt imports,  includes, document(), etc.). Looking at the documentation  xmlSetExternalEntityLoader is what I want but I am not sure what I am  supposed to do next. I guess I am supposed to create a  xmlParserInputPtr but how do I create one for an XML document, is  that what xmlNewEntityInputStream is for, in which case how do I  create a xmlEntity.

The xsltproc utility does this, so get its source and see what it does. I actually hacked its init code to use in my app, and hacked the entity loader to call my own code.
