basically I'm looking to use xml in my game via the Expat parser. there arent really any tutorials on the site for it (there is one article but it doesnt explain itself well IMO), so was wondering if anyone had some links to any?

I see that the there are SAX and DOM 3rd party wrappers, SAX is easy and there are plenty of tutorials on DOM. Not sure if that would help.

Just found this with google: http://www.xml.com/pub/a/1999/09/expat/index.html

Wrappers basically put a new interface on top of an underlying system. They usally hide the more gritty details and allow for simpler higher level interaction.

If this is your first step into XML I would also suggest going to www.w3schools.com and learning about XML there. They have great tutorials, although the aim there is towards web development. Things like XSLT and XHTML probably aren't of much interest to you unless you are doing web development.
