Dealing with data in XML
Normally, when you store data in an XML file, you need to be careful about encoding it in a way that's safe and won't confuse the XML parser. The special XML markup characters need to be translated into entities, which can be cumbersome if you're writing the XML yourself in a text editor. To avoid this, you can use the CDATA section to store the data directly without having to worry about encoding. This article will tell you about XML CDATA sections and show you how to use them when you need to ship marked-up data along with your XML file.

Command-line processing with getopt()
All UNIX(R) programs, even those with graphical user interfaces (GUIs), accept and process command-line options. For some programs, this is the primary means of interacting with either other programs, or users. Having robust handling of complex command-line arguments makes your application better and more useful. And yet, many developers are spending their precious time writing their own command-line parsers instead of using getopt(), a library function designed specifically to ease the burden of command-line processing. Read on to learn how to use getopt() to record your command-line arguments in a global structure that can then be used throughout your program whenever appropriate.
