Result

Returns XML reference or error.

Description

Reads container content as XML.
The document stays in memory and can be queried several times as needed.
If you need to query a lot of values, please parse once first. Else all XML functions need to parse again on each call.
Please use XML.Release later to free document from memory.

By passing XML directly from file content to XML engine, we avoid any corruption due to wrong encoding or line endings.

Examples

Read XML from container:

MBS( "XML.ReadContainer"; Test::XMLContainer )
