Re: [xml] Obtain "Next Child" using tree

I know this is a great drawback of labVIEW but unfortunately these are
the tools I have to work with. Is there a work around (function or
combination of functions) I can use to get the next child (NodePtr)
form the childrenlist or should I defer to the xmlReader where the
callback function allows me to step through the document.

Perhaps there is a function that converts the current node of the
xmlReaderPtr to a xmlNodePtr?

I'm currently developing a new software application in labVIEW using
libXML to create new XML files. Implementing the "writer" went
smoothly but now I'm stuck at reading the XML back into memory from
file and stepping through it.

Since I'm writing my code in labVIEW, I can only make some schematic
representation of which functions I'm calling and not past the actual

xmlParseFile (returns me a DocPtr)
xmlDocGetRootElement (returns me a NodePtr)

At this point normal C code would look like this:

cur = cur->xmlChildrenNode;
      while (cur != NULL) {

Unfortunately labVIEW doesn't allow me to do this, I can only do
functions calls. I'm kind of looking for a function "xmlGetNextChild"
(similar to xmlGetLastChild) or a work-around that I can implement in

  I don't know labVIEW, but that sounds a very serious bug in their bindings
if they didn't provide this, you should ask them.
