libxml2: libxml2 (XML parser library)
libxml2: Libxml2 is the XML C parser library and toolkit. XML itself is a
libxml2: metalanguage to design markup languages -- i.e. a text language where
libxml2: structures are added to the content using extra "markup" information
libxml2: enclosed between angle brackets. HTML is the most well-known markup
libxml2: language. Though the library is written in C, a variety of language
libxml2: bindings make it available in other environments.
