C++ XML Library Suggestions

Recommended Posts

GenuineXP    262
I'm just wondering if I could get a few suggestions for XML parsing libraries for C++. I've used TinyXML in the past, but that's about it, and I'm not really sure what else is out there or worth learning. Also, I've seen message board posts about proposing an XML library for Boost. Is this a reality, or just people's dreams? :P (If there is a Boost.XML library, I'd surely use it.) Anyway, any suggestions and rationale would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, GameDev!

Actually, TinyXML has done everything I need it to thus far (though I never figured out how to write XML back out properly). I'm just curious about alternatives, particularly those that work in different way than TinyXML.

XMLParser from http://www.applied-mathematics.net/tools/xmlParser.html is great! Two files: one header and one source file, and you're good to go.

I've been using this for about a year now and I've never looked back to tinyXML or Xerces *ugh*.

I actually use TinyXML with TinyXPath. After getting XPath in, I've never used XML in the same way. Searching with a query string is much easier than browsing through children and siblings.
