Libxml2 is the XML C parser and toolkit developed for the Gnome project (but usable outside of the Gnome platform), libxml2 library is free software available under the MIT License. XML itself is a metalanguage to design markup languages, i.e. text language where semantic and structure are added to the content using extra "markup" information enclosed between angle brackets. HTML is the most well-known markup language. Though the library is written in C a variety of language bindings make it available in other environments.
Libxml2 is known to be very portable, the library should build and work without serious troubles on a variety of systems (Linux, Unix, Windows, CygWin, MacOS, MacOS X, RISC Os, OS/2, VMS, QNX, MVS, ...)
Here are some key features of "libxml2":
Libxml2 exports Push (progressive) and Pull (blocking) type parser interfaces for both XML and HTML.
Libxml2 can do DTD validation at parse time, using a parsed document instance, or with an arbitrary DTD.
Libxml2 includes complete XPath, XPointer and XInclude implementations.
It is written in plain C, making as few assumptions as possible, and sticking closely to ANSI C/POSIX for easy embedding. Works on Linux/Unix/Windows, ported to a number of other platforms.
Basic support for HTTP and FTP client allowing applications to fetch remote resources.
The design is modular, most of the extensions can be compiled out.
The internal document representation is as close as possible to the DOM interfaces.
Libxml2 also has a SAX like interface; the interface is designed to be compatible with Expat.
This library is released under the MIT License. See the Copyright file in the distribution for the precise wording.
