User:David Nemeskey/CG XML brainstorming
This page lists my (and others') ideas of how the CG XML format could or should look like.
Sets and lists
The words set and list are used interchangeably in CG. This is in contrast to how these term are used in CS, and partly to the commonsensical meanings of the words as well. The current planning process might be just the right time to fix this issue. I propose to say good-bye to list.
The (XML) tags below will be used throughout the grammar for specifying tags and sets in e.g. constraint conditions.
|Item||CG syntax||XML syntax|
|Sequence tag||(n pl)|
setare very similar, which might be a problem when skimming through a CG
- I don't know if we even need
set-- in the construction rules, you have to put sets to everywhere, and those will have separate XML tags anyway.
Probably the easiest of the bunch.
