Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] XML parsing

Hi Abhik,

Sorry, I guess I mean: what is the earliest version of glib that supports the APIs you're talking about?
For Windows we don't have a problem because we distribute glib with 
Wireshark, but all other OS's rely on the currently-installed glib. 
"configure.in" currently enforces glib > 2.4 .  Increasing that may be 
OK but of course it means some number of people will have to go upgrade 
their glib (so doing it shouldn't be taken lightly).
Regards,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I meant version of glib which is part of the current set of libraries used to build the SVN version (in particular wireshark-win32-libs). There are a few different ways of parsing XML used in various parts of WS, and I wanted to use an existing API without having to introduce a new dependency (but also without having to use any parser generators) and it seems to be possible using the mentioned functionality.
Thanks,
Abhik.

    Define "latest."  (I looked through the GLIB documentation and their
    list of symbols new to each release and at least some of the markup
    functions have been around for a while.)
