1.1 Introduction

The XML plugin allows Hollywood scripts to parse XML files easily and efficiently enabling you to make use of this extremely flexible universal markup language that can be used for so many different purposes. The plugin offers a powerful library interface that allows you to access all kinds of data in XML documents like nodes, attributes, namespaces, entities, attlists, CDATA and more.

On top of that, the XML plugin also supports Hollywood's serialization interface which means that you can conveniently serialize Hollywood tables to XML documents by just a single call to Hollywood's SerializeTable() function. In the same manner you can also deserialize whole XML documents into Hollywood tables by a single call to Hollywood's DeserializeTable() function. It just doesn't get any easier!
