Mini-XML is a tiny XML library that you can use to read and write XML and XML-like data files in your application without requiring large non-standard libraries. Mini-XML only requires an ANSI C compatible compiler (GCC works, as do most vendors’ ANSI C compilers) and a make program.

Mini-XML supports reading of UTF-8 and UTF-16 and writing of UTF-8 encoded XML files and strings. Data is stored in a linked-list tree structure, preserving the XML data hierarchy, element names, attributes, and attribute values are supported with no preset limits, just available memory.

Mini-XML is provided under version 2 of the GNU Library General Public License, with an exception to allow static linking.
