I've posted this message in the user list before with no response. I
realized it might be better to post here again since boost.property_tree
is still in the svn trunk yet to be released with boost 1.5.0.
I am trying to use read_xml() on an xml-format config file, which starts
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"> .....
This file is well-formed and verified by "XML Copy Writer", it can also
be open by IE or Filefox with no problem.
I am using this code snippet to parse this file:
} catch(xml_parser-error e)
and it throws an exception saying "expected <".
By looking into the code I found that, this caused by the fact that
the xmlfile starts with a Unicode Byte Order Mark (BOM)-0xFFFE .
"fffe 3c00 3f00 7800 ......"
However, read_xml() cannot handle this BOM byte and throws. It's easy to
fix it by simply discard the BOM byte, but I wonder whether there is
already a flag to enable/disable this that I am unaware of.
BTW, I am using the svn trunk version.
Can anyone help to clarify?
