Introduction to LibXML2

LibXML2 is the XML C parser and toolkit developed for the Gnome project (but usable outside of the Gnome platform). Although the library is written in C, a variety of language bindings make it available in other environments.

Test Suite Notes

If you wish to run the 32-bit test suites in a 64-bit environment (i.e. the 32Bit and N32 sections), you need to use make USE_ARCH=32 check. If you do not include USE_ARCH=32, then the Python tests will fail.

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Install the package

make install

Multilib

32Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" USE_ARCH=32 ./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/xml2-config{,-32}

N32

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" USE_ARCH=n32 ./configure --prefix=/usr \
    --libdir=/usr/lib32 &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/xml2-config{,-n32}

64Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" USE_ARCH=64 ./configure --prefix=/usr \
    --libdir=/usr/lib64 &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/xml2-config{,-64} &&
ln -sfv multiarch_wrapper /usr/bin/xml2-config

Short Descriptions

xml2-config determines the compile and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use libxml2.
xmlcatalog is used to monitor and manipulate XML and SGML catalogs.
xmllint parses XML files and outputs reports (based upon options) to detect errors in XML coding.
libxml2.{so,a} libraries provide the functions for programs to parse files that use the XML format.
