[erlang-questions] Rant: I hate parsing XML with Erlang
Tue Oct 23 12:52:28 CEST 2007
I only have so much horizontal real-estate on my screen and I totally
hate how xmlElement and xmlAttribute take so much of it. I also hate
how XML parsing code looks in Erlang.
Am I the only one?
I think Simon Peyton-Jones (Haskell) said that the syntax is the user
interface of a language. If so then Erlang has a user interface only
a mother could love, at least when it comes to parsing XML!
