I'm close to having the whole message infrastructure for the General Presence hub rebuilt in an easier to use way.

I'm building 'DOM' style representations of the incoming XML.  This will let me quickly prototype up something to handle a protocol without hand writing a picky parser.  It will accept a really loose form of the protocol at first, but at least it will work.

Hopefully, later, I can add a component that automatically checks it against some facsimile of a DTD.  Probably not directly from the DTD.  I'll probably have to translate the rules in the DTD into some very similar C++ structure or code, but that will be lots easier than what I had been doing, which was writing careful state machines (that are NOT directly related to the DTD) for parsing.

I've been strangely productive just before bedtime with this cold or whatever it is. It's kind of annoying in a way. Especially when the cold itself makes it hard to sleep.

hope you get better soon. meanwhile, id like your response to this: http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=d_e_l_i_r_i_u_m&itemid=78081 especially since i intend to steal your penguin/puter icon if im going to do that, unless you're against it. (it wouldnt stay long in any case, but i do believe in heads-ups. i spend way too much time online being ignorant, but i cant seem to buckle down and actively study, only passively. i=slothly. maybe i need caffeine. if this bothers too much, no worries; i know youre sick and busy and such.

wish i werent so boring. i mean, im not, completely, i just hide all the insane stuff.

eh... end ramble.
