GDL Parser

The GDL parser converts GDL data into an XML snapshot. For more information about controlling the parser, see IPrintCoreHelperUni interface.

GDL provides standard parsing and template-based parsing.

The parser filter recognizes a variety of data type primitives. These data types can appear as the value of an attribute and are mapped to their nearest XML equivalent in the XML snapshot. Additionally, the parser filter recognizes compound data types that are created from the primitive data types. The data type templates are used to define data types, and the *ValueType directive is used to associate a data type template with an attribute template.

For more information about standard parsing, see Standard GDL Parsing.

For more information about template data types, see GDL Template Data Types.

For troubleshooting information about parsing, see Troubleshooting GDL Parsing.
