Subject: Port of Mini-XML library to Rockbox: making progress.

Port of Mini-XML library to Rockbox: making progress.

Dear Rockbox developers,
dear Mini-XML developer,

I am currently porting the Mini-XML xml library to Rockbox (latest
version to date: 2.3, released under LGPL2+).

http://www.minixml.org/

I am starting to get good results, so I would like to let the
community know.

I am rather new to Rockbox development, and this is part of a series
of experimentations to determine the feasibility of a DAISY player on
Rockbox (Digital Talking Books for the blind and visually impaired).

I have completed stage 1: Mini-XML compiles and runs as a plugin that
launches a series of tests. At this state, the tests fail when it
comes to loading data from a file, but succeed when creating the XML
document programmatically.

The cause is probably the underlying memory management logic
(simulated dynamic memory allocation, currently borrowed from the
Doom plugin). I am working on this and would be happy to get some help.

Please note that in this early stage, I develop essentially for the
Toshiba Gigabeat target, and my code crashes on the simulator. I am
sure this can be easily improved though.

Documentation about my work, as well as the source code (SVN
repository) are available at GoogleCode:

Kind regards,
Daniel WECK.
