Re: [xml] How to override SystemID in xmlReader?

Hi Daniel,
thank you for the prompt response.

There are not a whole lot of example around catalog, translating a SystemID into a new SystemID in particular.
Suppose I go build a catalog. How do I tell the xmlReader to use it with the document I am about to open?

I did not find any examples to this.

Tapping into the I/O with callbacks does not seem to achieve this. At least, the examples I see in io1.c do not help.

Any further hints?

Best regards: Zoltán Ördögh

  Hum, catalogs are done exactly for this:

otherwise just override the I/O handling something along the lines of
