Parsing a DTD for information

If you are using Java, then you can try using the XMLDTDScanner class
provided in the Xerces 3.0.0EA3 Java Parser avaliable from IBM
In case you are using C++, I think there is no C++ parser which provides
the facility to retrieve element information from a DTD (if anyone knows
about it please let me know!). In this case, one approach may be to use
some converter to convert the DTD to DDML/XSchema and retrieve the
schema information from the DDML/XSchema file.
