Projects / RNV


RNV is an implementation of Relax NG Compact Syntax validator. It is written in ANSI C and the command-line utility uses Expat. It is a part of an on-going work, and the current code may have bugs and shortcomings; however, it validates documents against a number of grammars.

Release Notes: The pattern space compression algorithm has been rewritten; two serious bugs have recently been found in it. It should be correct now, and if it is still not, debugging should become much easier.

Release Notes: Two ways to use extension datatype libraries have been implemented: either external program or built-in Scheme interpreter. These allow the datatype-checking capabilities of Relax NG to be extended far beyond the scope of XML Schema datatypes. RNV now parses external system entities, as it was an omission not to implement this earlier. Memory usage and diagnostics have been improved. The source code has been rearranged again for better modularity.
