CyberNeko Pull Parser 0.2.4


NekoPull is an XML document parsing API that extends the Xerces Native Interface (XNI) to provide pull parsing functionality. The pull parsing paradigm is different from tree-based APIs like the Document Object Model (DOM) and event stream APIs like the Simple API for XML (SAX) in that the application controls the parsing of documents. NekoPull is similar to lex in that the application requests, or pulls, the document information one piece at a time instead of having document information pushed to the application.

This implementation of NekoPull is driven by the Xerces2 parser. As such, there are inherent limits based on the Xerces2 parser. However, the API itself does not have have these limits — other parsers can be written that implement the NekoPull API directly for optimal performance.
