[erlang-questions] Erlang documentation -- a modest proposal

Hi Kenneth,

Thanks, I'll take a look.

I need to dig deeper, but so far I haven't found schemas. 

I've been working through these sources:

  --- I can get the book facts I need here via xmerl, but would also like a redundant source. So far I haven't been able to locate a schema.

  --- info overload -- still trying to figure it out

  -- can get partial info here via xmerl, but need to do some inconvenient post processing. 

Thanks again for the suggestion.

If you have an XML schema file, erlsom can be run in "data binder" mode
which will create a nice Erlang record out of a well-formed XML document:


As part of this mode of operation, erlsom can also process the XML
schema file and create a hrl file containing the record definition. I
found this _much_ easier to work with than what xmerl offers.
