Cvsgrab - Grab CVS snapshots

Ludovic Claude has submitted cvsgrab. This is a combination of BeanShell and HotSAX that can grab CVS snapshots or a single file from any ViewCVS server. This is quite handy if you are behind a corporate firewall and can't access anonymous CVS.

The test script included grabs the HotSAX project from the SourceForge ViewCVS server.

Cvsgrab is in the HotSAX-contrib package.

User contributions added

The HotSAX user contributions package is now online. The first contribution is cvsgrab by Ludovic Claude. Cvsgrab will grab files from a ViewCVS server even if you are behind a corporate firewall and can't get them via normal anon cvs.

HotSAX-0.1.1 Released. New Features + Bugs dead

HotSAX Release 0.1.1 has been released.

HotSAX is the lightweight, fast, embeddable HTML-friendly SAX parser. HotSAX is what you need to uncomplicate your HTML parsing chores.

This version fixes a number of bugs related to parsing unquoted attribute values. Values like CGI name/value pairs in unquoted hrefs confused the earlier version.

HotSAX now correctly handles CDATA blocks. Angle bracket markup within does not affect it. The correct event stream is now passed to org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler.... read more
