Subject RE: Parser

A parser is the piece of program that splits something (in this case an XML
document) up into pieces and recognizes them.

Usually the parser will be used in a manner, where it then either delivers
the XML document in another form to the program using it, or asks the
program what to do with each bit of XML.

  Hi everybody,
      I'm afraid I'll bother you with a dummy question but I'm a
fresher...What is a parser and what do you use it for?
