XML Parser plugin released

A new plugin for Hollywood has been released today: The XML Parser plugin allows Hollywood scripts to parse XML files easily and efficiently. This finally allows Hollywood users to make use of this extremely flexible universal markup language that can be used for so many purposes. The plugin needs to be installed into LIBS:Hollywood but the included installer will take care of that automatically. Once the plugin has been installed successfully, a new user library should show up in the plugin.api tab in the Hollywood GUI. This plugin is based on libexpat and luaexpat.

You can download the plugin from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood 5.0's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3 (Classic), AmigaOS3 (FPU), AmigaOS4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS (Intel), Linux (PowerPC), Linux (Intel), Mac OS (PowerPC), Mac OS (Intel) and Windows are provided.

Yep, looks good to me. You see the XML nodes and stuff in the debug output window. Seems ok. So, what is your question?

Well, no offence, but I think you really should read some basic articles about XML (not related to Hollywood, just grab some info from Wikipedia and so forth) first. Then you will automagically see the benefits of the XML plugin! :-)
