( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The reason that the "memory structures (are created) in a generic way" is because it's parsing generic data. You will never find a bit of code on this planet that will ever take your totally unknown XML and turn it into a non-generic data structure. The only way it could be possible is if you provide a schema of some sort or write your own parser (or subclass one).

What I gather from your comments is that your data being parsed isn't something you generated yourself, but something some other app out there generated. Can you give an example of the data that you're parsing? It might help to give you a pointer in the right direction.


While I ask a lot of Win32 questions, I hate Windows with a passion. That's the problem with writing a cross-platform program. I'm a Linux user myself. I wish more people were.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
