    Need advice to parser MS EXCEL XML Spreadsheet in C/GTK+

    Hi, all.

    I am working a small project to read the MS EXCEL XML Spreadsheet into GTK+ CList. The book keeping data is stored in MS Excel and is saved as XML Spreadsheet. My app is to load the data from XML Spreadsheet into GTK+ CList for next processing.

    Which XML parsering libarary (in C) I should use, Libxml2 or else?

    Use whichever you feel happy with.
    I've used expat before, but that's only because Perl also uses it, so I'm familiar with it.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I'm going to use expat soon. Yeah.
    Or I might write my own. It depends on how I feel at the time of design.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.
