I am trying to develop a tool that will allow PCGen users to upload
characters to my site. Due to the necessity to transform the data from the
PCGen file format to something I can use, I have been looking into the XML
options. PCGen currently is able to dump into 3 different XML file formats.
I assume this is slowly being developed into some kind of standard (I hope).
The main concern I have is the reuse of object names in the XML document.
I have taken the CodeMonkey.xml file and iterated through it to it's lowest
child nodes. The problem I am having is how would I distinguish between the
various node names. How does PCGen get the individual nodes without doing
some kind of in string function to find the parts?
I would like to see some kind of consistency, I even like the MT XML output
But I would rather integrate my site with PCGen than Master Tools right now.
Should I work on my own variation of the XML output? What is the latest
build on a character sheet?
