Expeditious XML Processing
We present a representation for XML documents, derived from Warren’s representation of Prolog terms in the Warren Abstract Machine (WAM), which permits very efficient access and update operations. Our scheme is implemented in CXMLParser, a non-validating XML processor. We present the results of a performance comparison with two other XML processors, which show that CXMLParser is faster by a factor of 2.2 to 4.3 than its nearest competitor.
