Actually I should be more specific. I may be confused what a parser is.
Maybe if I understand this, it will help me read the docs and available
Here's what I thought. I have a data file, for example:
... etc, etc ...
I was under the impression that I can use a parser to process the data file,
so I can check, for example:
if PO.Approver = "John Smith":
special_discount = 10
Am I far off? If not, then how do I use the xml modules to do what I intend
to do? Thanks in advance.
