Expat API

Hi. I'm new to this list (just subscribed today) and searched the 
archives on expat, but it failed to answer my question.

My question is: where is the documentation on how to use the expat 
API? I downloaded version 1.0.2 and ported the code to run the sample 
program on my Macintosh, but I'm pretty much dead in the water. I 
tried sending email to the author (James Clark) twice in the last few 
days, but I have so far failed to receive a response. The comments in 
the header files do not seem to be sufficient.

What I am trying to do is parse some well-formed XML such as the 
following example so that I can get the tags (which the example shows 
me how to do) and then obtain the text.


<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>


<FOO ID="12345678">



For example, I would like to be able to obtain the <FOO> TAG as well 
as the FOO ID (12345678), then the <NAME> tag along with the enclosed 
text (cat) then the <TYPE> tag along with its enclosed text (gray).

However, the sample program only shows how to retrieve the tags.

If anyone has some example code, I would be grateful. If someone has 
documentation, that would be appreciated as well.
