Development/Tutorials/Programming Tutorial KDE 4/How to write an XML parser

The printable version is no longer supported and may have rendering errors. Please update your browser bookmarks and please use the default browser print function instead.

A parser is used to distinguish between formal language and bulk data of a given grammar. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parser if in doubt. There are two ways to write a parser: to split up the content of a file into an object as known from object-oriented programming or to trigger a function everytime a reader occurs a given syntax tag. In the following code, a function is triggered for every time an html tag is found in a file. The first file is hello.cpp: <highlightSyntax language="cpp"> /* hello.cpp compile it with g++ -I. -I/home/kde-devel/kde/include -I/home/kde-devel/qt-unstable/include/Qt -I/home/kde-devel/qt-unstable/include -I/home/kde-devel/qt-unstable/include/QtXml parser.h parser.cpp hello.cpp -L/home/kde-devel/kde/lib -L/home/kde-devel/qt-unstable/lib -lQtCore_debug -lQtXml_debug -lkdeui

  1. include <qstring.h>
  2. include <QXmlInputSource>
  3. include <qfile.h>
  4. include <parser.h>

int main() {

 Parser* handler=new Parser();
 QXmlInputSource* source=new QXmlInputSource(new QFile("hello.htm"));
 QXmlSimpleReader reader;
 reader.setContentHandler( handler );
 reader.parse( source );

} </highlightSyntax>
