XML output


Benefits include:

  • Has better support for error-handling: It tells you explicitly when something when wrong, in what stage of the MQL compiler, the source of the error (compiler or back-end), and any error message.

  • Tells you exactly when a command is being processed and when it is finished.

  • Shows the progress of query-queries.


Drawbacks include:

  • More verbose, and may take longer to parse.

  • More complex in its syntax and more complex to parse.

Later, we will expound the DTD of the XML output.
