But FPC-XML is not meant for storing objects. It is meant to
read any correctly formed XML file that you may find.
FPC-XML is not something we invented. It is an implementation of
an official W3 specification. (www.w3.org)
Having this specification available means that we can read/write
any XML document out there that conforms to this spec, in a standard
manner. Since the programmer does not always control the XML he/she
gets, sticking to the specifications means we're sure we'll we able
to handle any XML thrown at us.
That is why we implement FCL-XML. Sooner or later the day comes
when you'll need it's features, trust me :-)
