Easier to have your own format/parser?
One example of a xml dictionary that I'm using right now:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<dictionary version='1.0' selected_language='eng'>
<translation language='eng'>Good bye</translation>
What kind of file would be clearer than that?
The XML parser in C2 is about 10 lines.
Not trying to compete here! I know any syntax is better than mine, that's why I'm looking for alternatives.
