Reading and Writing XML Data
The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a universal format for exchanging structured documents and data on the web. For those unfamiliar with XML, XML in 10 Points provides a short introduction. It is taken literally from http://www.w3.org/XML/1999/XML-in-10-points, and is copyrighted © 1999-2000 by the W3C organization. Introduction to XML Support in AIMMS onwards explain in detail how AIMMS lets you employ the XML data format from within your AIMMS applications.
