HaXml-1.19.7: Utilities for manipulating XML documents



A parser for the Xtract command-language. (The string input is tokenised internally by the lexer lexXtract.) See http://www.haskell.org/HaXml/Xtract.html for the grammar that is accepted.



parseXtract :: [Token] -> DFilter iSource

The cool thing is that the Xtract command parser directly builds a higher-order DFilter (see Text.XML.HaXml.Xtract.Combinators) which can be applied to an XML document without further ado. (parseXtract halts the program if a parse error is found.)

xtract :: (String -> String) -> String -> CFilter iSource

To convert an Xtract query into an ordinary HaXml combinator expression. First arg is a tag-transformation function (e.g. map toLower) applied
