A Scripting Language for Web, Linux and Windows

Example: Work with XML documents

Demonstrates how to work with libXML2 library.
libXML2 functions are defined in lib/xml2.inc.v1

Note: You have to install libXML2 libraries. On Windows copy the 32-Bit DLL's from HERE into the home directory of V1 where v1.exe is located.
