I'm writing an application (in Python) that is part of a bigger
infrastructure for B2B messaging. One communication channel is an EDI
interface to the B2B messaging system.
I need to parse a (subset) of the UN EDIFACT (aka EDI) standard
(homepage: http://www.unece.org/trade/untdid/welcome.htm). After doing
the initial reading of the standard it looks like it is quite hard to
make a parser for this standard (and constructor').
1) Is there a python EDI module? I can't find any :(
2) Is there a (python) EDI to XML converter?
3) Is there anything that I can use to easily interface with EDI?
(preferably in lib and DLL form)
If the above is not available or fails...
[You have to know that I've never written a parser in Python before.
The last (big) parser I wrote was in C with a few years back the help
of lex and yacc if memory serves me right.]
What is the best approach to writing an EDI parser in Python?
Thanks for your input,
