Why XML?

Postby Sneebol » Wed Apr 27, 2016 5:01 am

We use XML to store variable data about cars, tracks and menus. Why? Both JSON and YAML are easier to read(especially YAML).

Legacy. TORCS dates back to the late 90s when XML was the new thing. Switching requires large effort for very little gain.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Also yeah, I see what you mean. I tried to make my own data format with Haskell (found a guide for one, not that I followed it: http://blog.functorial.com/posts/2013-0 ... guage.html), but I got bored of that and sorta realized nobody really seem to know Haskell, and I didn't think about all the work that had to be done around it. Again, thanks.
