<p>Libxml2 is the XML C parser and toolkit developed for the Gnome project
(but usable outside of the Gnome platform), it is free software available
under the <a href="">MIT
License</a>. XML itself is a metalanguage to design markup languages, i.e.
text language where semantic and structure are added to the content using
extra "markup" information enclosed between angle brackets. HTML is the most
well-known markup language. Though the library is written in C <a
href="python.html">a variety of language bindings</a> make it available in
other environments.</p>
<p>Libxml2 is known to be very portable, the library should build and work
without serious troubles on a variety of systems (Linux, Unix, Windows,
CygWin, MacOS, MacOS X, RISC Os, OS/2, VMS, QNX, MVS, VxWorks, ...)</p>

<h2><a name="Introducti">Introduction</a></h2>
<p>This document describes libxml, the <a
href="">XML</a> C parser and toolkit developed for the
<a href="">Gnome</a> project. <a
href="">XML is a standard</a> for building tag-based
structured documents/data.</p>
<p>Here are some key points about libxml:</p>
<li>Libxml2 exports Push (progressive) and Pull (blocking) type parser
interfaces for both XML and HTML.</li>
<li>Libxml2 can do DTD validation at parse time, using a parsed document
instance, or with an arbitrary DTD.</li>
<li>Libxml2 includes complete <a
href="">XPath</a>, <a
href="">XPointer</a> and <a
href="">XInclude</a> implementations.</li>
<li>It is written in plain C, making as few assumptions as possible, and
sticking closely to ANSI C/POSIX for easy embedding. Works on
Linux/Unix/Windows, ported to a number of other platforms.</li>
<li>Basic support for HTTP and FTP client allowing applications to fetch
remote resources.</li>
<li>The design is modular, most of the extensions can be compiled out.</li>
<li>The internal document representation is as close as possible to the <a
href="">DOM</a> interfaces.</li>
<li>Libxml2 also has a <a
href="">SAX like interface</a>;
the interface is designed to be compatible with <a

<p>libxml2 is released under the <a
License</a>; see the file Copyright in the distribution for the precise
<li><em>Can I embed libxml2 in a proprietary application ?</em>
<p>Yes. The MIT License allows you to keep proprietary the changes you
made to libxml, but it would be graceful to send-back bug fixes and
improvements as patches for possible incorporation in the main
development tree.</p>
<h3><a name="Installati">Installation</a></h3>
<li><strong><span style="background-color: #FF0000">Do Not Use
libxml1</span></strong>, use libxml2</li>
<li><em>Where can I get libxml</em> ?
<p>The original distribution comes from <a
href=""></a> or <a
<p>Most Linux and BSD distributions include libxml, this is probably the
safer way for end-users to use libxml.</p>
<p>David Doolin provides precompiled Windows versions at <a
href=" "></a></p>
<li><em>I see libxml and libxml2 releases, which one should I install ?</em>
<li>If you are not constrained by backward compatibility issues with
existing applications, install libxml2 only</li>
<li>If you are not doing development, you can safely install both.
Usually the packages <a
href="">libxml</a> and <a
href="">libxml2</a> are
compatible (this is not the case for development packages).</li>
<li>If you are a developer and your system provides separate packaging
for shared libraries and the development components, it is possible
to install libxml and libxml2, and also <a
and <a
too for libxml2 &gt;= 2.3.0</li>
<li>If you are developing a new application, please develop against
<li><em>I can't install the libxml package, it conflicts with libxml0</em>
<p>You probably have an old libxml0 package used to provide the shared
library for, you can probably safely remove it. The libxml
packages provided on <a
href=""></a> provide</p>
<li><em>I can't install the libxml(2) RPM package due to failed
<p>The most generic solution is to re-fetch the latest src.rpm , and
rebuild it locally with</p>
<p><code>rpm --rebuild libxml(2)-xxx.src.rpm</code>.</p>
<p>If everything goes well it will generate two binary rpm packages (one
providing the shared libs and xmllint, and the other one, the -devel
package, providing includes, static libraries and scripts needed to build
applications with libxml(2)) that you can install locally.</p>
<h3><a name="Compilatio">Compilation</a></h3>
<li><em>What is the process to compile libxml2 ?</em>
<p>As most UNIX libraries libxml2 follows the "standard":</p>
<p><code>gunzip -c xxx.tar.gz | tar xvf -</code></p>
<p><code>cd libxml-xxxx</code></p>
<p><code>./configure --help</code></p>
<p>to see the options, then the compilation/installation proper</p>
<p><code>./configure [possible options]</code></p>
<p><code>make install</code></p>
<p>At that point you may have to rerun ldconfig or a similar utility to
update your list of installed shared libs.</p>
<li><em>What other libraries are needed to compile/install libxml2 ?</em>
<p>Libxml2 does not require any other library, the normal C ANSI API
should be sufficient (please report any violation to this rule you may
<p>However if found at configuration time libxml2 will detect and use the
following libs:</p>
<li><a href="">libz</a> : a
highly portable and available widely compression library.</li>
<li>iconv: a powerful character encoding conversion library. It is
included by default in recent glibc libraries, so it doesn't need to
be installed specifically on Linux. It now seems a <a
of the official UNIX</a> specification. Here is one <a
href="">implementation of the
library</a> which source can be found <a
<li><em>Make check fails on some platforms</em>
<p>Sometimes the regression tests' results don't completely match the
value produced by the parser, and the makefile uses diff to print the
delta. On some platforms the diff return breaks the compilation process;
if the diff is small this is probably not a serious problem.</p>
<p>Sometimes (especially on Solaris) make checks fail due to limitations
in make. Try using GNU-make instead.</p>
<li><em>I use the SVN version and there is no configure script</em>
<p>The configure script (and other Makefiles) are generated. Use the script to regenerate the configure script and Makefiles,
<p><code>./ --prefix=/usr --disable-shared</code></p>
<li><em>I have troubles when running make tests with gcc-3.0</em>
<p>It seems the initial release of gcc-3.0 has a problem with the
optimizer which miscompiles the URI module. Please use another
<h3><a name="Developer">Developer</a> corner</h3>
<li><em>Troubles compiling or linking programs using libxml2</em>
<p>Usually the problem comes from the fact that the compiler doesn't get
the right compilation or linking flags. There is a small shell script
<code>xml2-config</code> which is installed as part of libxml2 usual
install process which provides those flags. Use</p>
<p><code>xml2-config --cflags</code></p>
<p>to get the compilation flags and</p>
<p><code>xml2-config --libs</code></p>
<p>to get the linker flags. Usually this is done directly from the
Makefile as:</p>
<p><code>CFLAGS=`xml2-config --cflags`</code></p>
<p><code>LIBS=`xml2-config --libs`</code></p>
<li><em>I want to install my own copy of libxml2 in my home directory and
link my programs against it, but it doesn't work</em>
<p>There are many different ways to accomplish this. Here is one way to
do this under Linux. Suppose your home directory is <code>/home/user.
<li>Create a subdirectory, let's call it <code>myxml</code></li>
<li>unpack the libxml2 distribution into that subdirectory</li>
<li>chdir into the unpacked distribution
(<code>/home/user/myxml/libxml2 </code>)</li>
<li>configure the library using the "<code>--prefix</code>" switch,
specifying an installation subdirectory in
<code>/home/user/myxml</code>, e.g.
<p><code>./configure --prefix /home/user/myxml/xmlinst</code> {other
configuration options}</p>
<li>now run <code>make</code> followed by <code>make install</code></li>
<li>At this point, the installation subdirectory contains the complete
"private" include files, library files and binary program files (e.g.
xmllint), located in
/home/user/myxml/xmlinst/include </code> and <code>
<li>In order to use this "private" library, you should first add it to
the beginning of your default PATH (so that your own private program
files such as xmllint will be used instead of the normal system
ones). To do this, the Bash command would be
<p><code>export PATH=/home/user/myxml/xmlinst/bin:$PATH</code></p>
<li>Now suppose you have a program <code>test1.c</code> that you would
like to compile with your "private" library. Simply compile it using
the command
<p><code>gcc `xml2-config --cflags --libs` -o test test.c</code></p>
Note that, because your PATH has been set with <code>
/home/user/myxml/xmlinst/bin</code> at the beginning, the xml2-config
program which you just installed will be used instead of the system
default one, and this will <em>automatically</em> get the correct
libraries linked with your program.</li>
<li><em>xmlDocDump() generates output on one line.</em>
<p>Libxml2 will not <strong>invent</strong> spaces in the content of a
document since <strong>all spaces in the content of a document are
significant</strong>. If you build a tree from the API and want
<li>the correct way is to generate those yourself too.</li>
<li>the dangerous way is to ask libxml2 to add those blanks to your
content <strong>modifying the content of your document in the
process</strong>. The result may not be what you expect. There is
<strong>NO</strong> way to guarantee that such a modification won't
affect other parts of the content of your document. See <a
()</a> and <a
<li><em>Extra nodes in the document:</em>
<p><em>For an XML file as below:</em></p>
<pre>&lt;?xml version="1.0"?&gt;
&lt;PLAN xmlns=""&gt;
&lt;NODE CommFlag="0"/&gt;
&lt;NODE CommFlag="1"/&gt;
<p><em>after parsing it with the function
<p><em>I want to the get the content of the first node (node with the
<p><em>so I did it as following;</em></p>
<pre>xmlNodePtr pnode;
<p><em>but it does not work. If I change it to</em></p>
<p><em>then it works. Can someone explain it to me.</em></p>
<p>In XML all characters in the content of the document are significant
<strong>including blanks and formatting line breaks</strong>.</p>
<p>The extra nodes you are wondering about are just that, text nodes with
the formatting spaces which are part of the document but that people tend
to forget. There is a function <a
()</a> to remove those at parse time, but that's an heuristic, and its
use should be limited to cases where you are certain there is no
mixed-content in the document.</p>
<li><em>I get compilation errors of existing code like when accessing
<strong>root</strong> or <strong>child fields</strong> of nodes.</em>
<p>You are compiling code developed for libxml version 1 and using a
libxml2 development environment. Either switch back to libxml v1 devel or
even better fix the code to compile with libxml2 (or both) by <a
href="upgrade.html">following the instructions</a>.</p>
<li><em>I get compilation errors about non existing
<strong>xmlRootNode</strong> or <strong>xmlChildrenNode</strong>
<p>The source code you are using has been <a
href="upgrade.html">upgraded</a> to be able to compile with both libxml
and libxml2, but you need to install a more recent version:
libxml(-devel) &gt;= 1.8.8 or libxml2(-devel) &gt;= 2.1.0</p>
<li><em>Random crashes in threaded applications</em>
<p>Read and follow all advices on the <a href="threads.html">thread
safety</a> page, and make 100% sure you never call xmlCleanupParser()
while the library or an XML document might still be in use by another

the libxml2 source</a> , I try to write code as clean and documented
as possible, so looking at it may be helpful. In particular the code
of <a href="">xmllint.c</a> and of the various testXXX.c test programs should
provide good examples of how to do things with the library.</li>
<li><em>What about C++ ?</em>
<p>libxml2 is written in pure C in order to allow easy reuse on a number
of platforms, including embedded systems. I don't intend to convert to

<p>Website: <a
<p>Download: <a
<li><em>How to validate a document a posteriori ?</em>
<p>It is possible to validate documents which had not been validated at
initial parsing time or documents which have been built from scratch
using the API. Use the <a
function. It is also possible to simply add a DTD to an existing
<pre>xmlDocPtr doc; /* your existing document */
xmlDtdPtr dtd = xmlParseDTD(NULL, filename_of_dtd); /* parse the DTD */
dtd-&gt;name = xmlStrDup((xmlChar*)"root_name"); /* use the given root */
doc-&gt;intSubset = dtd;
if (doc-&gt;children == NULL) xmlAddChild((xmlNodePtr)doc, (xmlNodePtr)dtd);
else xmlAddPrevSibling(doc-&gt;children, (xmlNodePtr)dtd);
<li><em>So what is this funky "xmlChar" used all the time?</em>
<p>It is a null terminated sequence of utf-8 characters. And only utf-8!
You need to convert strings encoded in different ways to utf-8 before
passing them to the API. This can be accomplished with the iconv library
for instance.</p>

<h2><a name="Reporting">Reporting bugs and getting help</a></h2>
<p>Well, bugs or missing features are always possible, and I will make a
point of fixing them in a timely fashion. The best way to report a bug is to
use the <a href="">Gnome
bug tracking database</a> (make sure to use the "libxml2" module name). I
look at reports there regularly and it's good to have a reminder when a bug
is still open. Be sure to specify that the bug is for the package libxml2.</p>
<p>For small problems you can try to get help on IRC, the #xml channel on (port 6667) usually have a few person subscribed which may help
(but there is no guarantee and if a real issue is raised it should go on the
mailing-list for archival).</p>
<p>There is also a mailing-list <a
href=""></a> for libxml, with an <a

it is LOST ! Repost it and fix the problem triggering the error. Also please
note that <span style="color: #FF0000; background-color: #FFFFFF">emails with
