Hello

I was looking for an app that could parse multiple XML files making up a huge collection of text called the British National Corpus, and then found a plugin for XML editing called Rinzo.

The site on Rinzo claims to parse large XML but does not explain if it can parse multiple XML files at one sitting and doesn't look easy to use. If someone out there has ever used this plugin, please let me know if it can do so. Also, if anyone knows any other way to parse multiple XML files with Eclipse, please post the technique as I could not find any.

Thank you for reading.

Thanks for the reply.

I would like to get Eclipse to find certain words across multiple XML files and to display the lines containing the words if possible.

fgrep? Here are some commands for you:

fgrep -Hn term *.xml # (in same subdirectory)

find . -name '*.xml' -exec fgrep -Hn term {} \; # (in multiple
subdirectories under the current subdirectory)

The built-in basic File Search can restrict itself to whole words. I don't think there's a search feature (from eclipse.org's XML Editor and tools) that specifically deals with XML syntax other than the one for detecting Tasks (looking for keywords specifically in comments, e.g. "TODO"). Even that has a practical limitation of 2GB since it can't report locations past there.

Anon Anon,

If you are interested in writing something to do this, I can help you,
particularly in Java having done this myself, though I'm not willing to
do the work for you. I can give you massive amounts of SAX handler and
symbol-table code for such a project.

This isn't an Eclipse concern, so contact me directly if you care.

Cheers,

Russ Bateman

Thank you, I would like to take up this option of running fgrep.
Being a complete beginner, I have so far only got up to creating a project and cannot figure fgrep can be run. Could you possibly please give me a little more advice about how running fgrep in the IDE?

The installation I have on my Mac is Eclipse for PHP Developers.

fgrep is a tool that's run from the command line on a *nix system. You can run it on Windows by installing Cygwin.
