programming language adapted to the manipulation of XML data


CDuce is a modern programming language adapted to the manipulation of XML documents.

Some of CDuce's peculiar features:
 - XML objects can be manipulated as first-class citizen values:
   elements, sequences, tags, characters and strings, attribute sets;
   sequences of XML elements can be specified by regular expressions,
   which also apply to characters strings;
 - functions themselves are first-class values, they can be
   manipulated, stored in data structure, returned by a function,...;
 - a powerful pattern matching operation can perform complex
   extractions from sequences of XML elements;
 - a rich type algebra, with recursive types and arbitrary boolean
   combinations (union, intersection, complement) allows precise
   definitions of data structures and XML types; general purpose
   types and types constructors are taken seriously (products,
   extensible records, arbitrary precision integers with interval
   constraints, Unicode characters);
 - polymorphism through a natural notion of subtyping, and overloaded
   functions with dynamic dispatch; - an highly-effective type-driven
   compilation schema.

CDuce is fast, functional, type-safe, and conforms to basic standards: Unicode, XML, DTD, Namespaces are fully supported, partial support of XML Schema validation is in alpha testing (and undocumented) while queries are being implemented.
