Dynamic Tree Created from an XML Data File

Dynamic Tree Created from an XML Data File

Some new files uploaded to the TestSuite, including this one, which stiches together a few things I’ve been thinking of for a while.

1) it uses a little cgi I wrote to take a url, fetch the file and return it as a javscript string variable assignment - for use in a <script src..> context, or with a bookmarklet as a way to generate javascript strings for output or manipulation. Its a way to get external data to a script in a useable format. (feel free to use)

2) it uses a little javascript xml parser I found to parse this string

3) using the xml structure it builds a navigation “tree”, so updating the leftnav is a matter of editing an xml file.

Inspired.. I created a little perl script to output documentation for all the (documented) cmd.exe shell commands. The script is posted too: cmds.pl
