  What's Ruby
  Ruby is the interpreted scripting language for quick and
  easy object-oriented programming. It has many features to
  process text files and to do system management tasks (as
  in perl). It is simple, straight-forward, and extensible. 

  This module provides XMLParser Class for Ruby.

  There are two kinds of interfaces, event handler and iterator.

  Event handler is like SAX(Simple API for XML). You can define
  your original classes inherited XMLParser class, and define
  event handler methods.

  Iterator is 'rubyish' method. If you want to know iterator in
  Ruby, please see Ruby's manual and/or Ruby's Users' Guide.

  Sample Libraries
  This module has sample libraries.

  * XML::SimpleTree

    library for making and accessing XML tree with API like
    W3C DOM.

  This module can handle UTF-8 and UTF-16. But with Uconv
  module (and Kconv module), You can use EUC-JP, Shift_JIS
  and ISO-2022-JP. 

  Uconv module is another ruby extentional module by Yoshida.

  or UCS-2.

  Kconv module is Ruby's standard extension. It can handle
  Shift_JIS, EUC-JP, and ISO-2022-JP.
