I used the libxml2 package recently, found it's a perfect XML parser.
The example codes/document are good for a newcomer to use the LibXML2,
but they lack of enough detail information. I had to dig into the
sources code if I want more furthermore details. I think we can write a
bible book, give a complete introduction for LibXML2 package, not only
it's calling convention, but also including it's design framework.
I had been approached a few years ago about writing a libxml2 book,
but it's a lot of work, I didn't had the time (and not much more now)
and it was made relatively clear that financially that may not be very
I don't have much time, so when i have some for libxml2 I prefer to
focuse on bugs or improvements that other contributors are less likely
My draft idea:
1) Generate a DocBook framework,
2) Anyone can select a chapter that he/she interested.
3) Organize all chapters into a complete LibXML2 bible book.
I think this would help a lot for many C/C++ programmers who're the
first time using LibXML2, and would make LibXML2 more popular in C/C++
domain. Maybe the book can be published by O.Reilly if it's good enough.
What's your opinions?
Sounds better than a wiki in my opinion, I'm fine adding this to CVS
and integrating patches to the docs as they come.
