NAME
       libxml - library used to parse XML files

DESCRIPTION
       The  libxml library is used to parse XML files.  Its internal document repesentation is as close as possible to
       the DOM (Document Object Model) interface, an API for accessing XML or HTML structured documents.

       The libxml library also has a SAX-like interface, which is designed to be compatible with expat(1).  NOTE: SAX,
       the  Simple  API for XML, is a standard interface for event-based XML parsing, developed collaboratively by the
       members of the XML-DEV mailing list, currently hosted by OASIS.  The expat library is a XML 1.0 parser  written
       in C, which aims to be fully conforming.  It is currently not a validating XML processor.

       The  libxml  library  now  includes a nearly complete XPath implementation.  The XPath (XML Path Language) is a
       language for addressing parts of an XML document, designed to be used by both XSLT and XPointer.

       The libxml library exports Push and Pull type parser interfaces for both XML and html.
