Hi Chris and other Boosters,

We have started using BGL in our simulation codes and are now converting
XML for I/O of simulation parameters (e.g. the graph structure).
As we do not know of a standard XML Schema for graphs we have designed
our own simple schema for now (see and
have written some simple functions to write a BGL graph using this
schema and to read one. I am at the moment finishing the documentation
on these ands related functions to create a BGL graph from
a lattice description. I hope to have the documentation finished by
It will then be at . I will post another
message when this is done.

Best regards,
