Gnosis Utils contains several Python modules for XML processing, plus other generally useful tools: xml.pickle (serializes objects to/from XML, API compatible with the standard pickle module), xml.objectify (turns arbitrary XML documents into Python objects), xml.validity (enforces XML validity constraints via DTD or Schema), xml.indexer (full text indexing/searching), and many more.
The NCBI C++ Toolkit provides portable libraries and applications for assisting genetic science. These include libraries for networking, SQL and BerkeleyDB access, CGI and HTML handling, ASN.1 and XML handling, sequence alignment engines, sequence retrieval engines, BLAST database engines, FLTK and OpenGL graphics toolkits, and basic system utilities.
QML (Quantity Modeling Language) is a "thing"-based language for scientific and mathematical data modeling. Each "thing" is a quantity which may be associated with either a structure or physical phenomena. Quantities, in turn, may hold other Quantities or values (numbers or strings). Higher-level data models, which associate or define meanings to various quantities (such as velocity or position), can be built from QML quantities. The higher-level data model (XML) schema that inherits from QML may be understood, and its instance documents may be parsed into QML documents and objects by the QMLReader.
The Functional XML Parsing Framework is a package of low-to-high-level lexing and parsing procedures that can be combined to yield a SAX, DOM, validating parsers, or a parser intended for a particular document type. The procedures in the package can be used separately to tokenize or parse various pieces of XML documents. The package supports XML namespaces, character, internal, and external parsed entities, xml:space, attribute value normalization, processing instructions and CDATA sections. It is intended to be a framework, a set of "Lego blocks" you can use to build a parser that follows DOM, SAX, or another discipline, and performs validation to any degree. As an example of such parser construction, the package includes a semi-validating SXML parser. It converts XML to SXML, an instance of XML Infoset as S-expressions, an abstract syntax tree of an XML document. SXML can be queried (in a XPath style), transformed, and evaluated. The framework parses XML in a pure functional style, as folding over a text XML document considered a spread-out tree. The input port is treated as a linear, read-once parameter. The framework's code does not use assignments at all.
