Writing a Flash Binary

Hi All

I am in need of the following...

1.  Read an XML file that contains the data
2.  and transform the XML and write a Flash binary file

I was told by some that it is easy and resources are available on the net. But as it is urgent I would like you experts to guide/help me out.

I am looking for some help or code examples that I can use from C#.

Thanks

This example uses the XMLTextReader class to extract the element names and text strings from the IntroToVCS.xml file and store the information in a string variable.

Example
System.Xml.XmlTextReader reader = new System.Xml.XmlTextReader("c:\\IntroToVCS.xml");
         string contents = "";
         while (reader.Read())
         {
            reader.MoveToContent();
            if (reader.NodeType == System.Xml.XmlNodeType.Element)
               contents += "<"+reader.Name + ">\n";
            if (reader.NodeType == System.Xml.XmlNodeType.Text)
               contents += reader.Value + "\n";
         }
Console.Write(contents);

Copy the code and paste it into the Main method of a console application.

Replace "c:\\IntroToVCS.xml" with the actual file name.


About second question I am not sure what you mean? So I will try to guess it :)  I think you mean XSLT to transform the contents of an XML file into a proprietary binary format. XSLT is capable of outputing only text formats such as XML, HTML and Text. See the documentation for xsl:output at

http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt#output

However, you can produce a text encoding of any data format using something like base64.

unfortunately, I don't have a .NET Documentation installed. But if you have, you can look for System.XML namespace where it has XMLParser class that is used to read an XML file that contains the data. To transform the XML, i don't really know.. i'm sorry

This article demonstrates on how to use base64 encoding:
