SAXHandler.C File Reference

Detailed Description

View in nbviewer Open in SWAN ROOT implementation of a simple SAX Handler.

This handler uses TSAXParser, a SAX Parser using the SAX interface of libxml2. This script will output all elements of the original xml file, if successfully parsed.

To run this program do:

.x SAXHandler.C

Requires: saxexample.xml

The program should be released as free software, under the GPL.
A GNOME based system that will allow a superuser to configure
compressed and uncompressed files and/or file systems to be backed
up with a supported media in the system. This should be able to
perform via find commands generating a list of files that are passed
to tar, dd, cpio, cp, gzip, etc., to be directed to the tape machine
or via operations performed on the filesystem itself. Email
notification and GUI status display very important.
