REXML in C


(Radu M. Obadã) #1

OK, scanned through the mailing list again, here is what occured to me:
as some people suggested, we could make a small hack to REXML, enabling
it to use a native, underlying C parser. IMO, that’s not as portable as
writing REXML as a C extension. Now, it seems most of the folks on this
mailing list agree that a C implementation would generally be faster
(correct me if I’m wrong), so we should decide wether we want to do this
or not. REXML is a beautiful piece of code, but as with all interpreted
things, most of the time C code is faster (and I’m too sorry we can’t
change that). I will be more than happy to work on such a project (as I
told you before, in a month or so, I will have a lot of spare time to…
spare:), so what do you think we should do?
Regards,
Radu
