rahulcafuego: haha
xingurahul: lazy parsing doesn't help.
rahulxingu: sure it does
xingurahul: xml doesn't specify the order of tags in a message
rahulxingu: you don't need the close tag... you just keep parsing as you get data. you can even have blocking accessors
xingurahul: you must recieve the end of a message before routing it
rahulxingu: XML isn't supposed to
xingurahul: your routing information might be in the first byte or in the last byte
rahulXML is for text, not structured data :)
xingurahul: it's a fricken waste of space
karstencureless: london channel == thames
dondelelcaroxingu: so compress it
rahuldondelelcaro: heh
karstencureless: Very bad obscure pun.
xingudondelelcaro: that makes the problem worse
dondelelcaroxingu: not really
cafuegoNow look. You're all wrong and I'm right, let's leave it at that.
xingudondelelcaro: the problem is the latency involved between the start and end of message
dondelelcaroxingu: there are plenty of compression algorithms which can be decompressed on the fly
xingudondelelcaro: compression/decompression increases the delay
rahuldondelelcaro: are there any that can't?
dondelelcaroxingu: if that's a problem, then XML is not the right format to use
xinguxml is never the right format to use
rahulxingu: depends on if you're CPU or bandwidth limited
xinguxml is a good way to describe how brilliant you aren't at data architecture
rahul: latency, always.
rahul: the speed of light isn't getting any quicker.
rahulno, XML isn't ever the right format, but it's theoretically possible to use it, sometimes
cafuegoxingu: XML is fully the right format to use for my LJ-related svg/pdf invoice generator.
karstenwhat's the tool to read / interpret / examine corefiles? gdb?
dondelelcarokarsten: that's one, yes.
rahulkarsten: yes
dondelelcaroxingu: XML has limitations, but it's a perfectly legitimate method of exchanging data. If you meet its limitations, then you can use something else
karstendanke
cafuegodondelelcaro: You need to append a "BUT YOU BETTER BLOODY WELL DOCUMENT IT!!!!"
dondelelcaroin many of the legitimate uses of XML, you don't particularly care how long it takes to handle the datafile
cafuego: yeah, but that kind of goes without saying
coldstealim looking for gnome-bluetooth
cafuegodondelelcaro: you'd *think* so....
coldsteali cant find it
