I read in the Handbuch that R8 can export XML, is there a filter for this that I can access with C.O.F.F.E.E?

The XML export is disabled in 8.012, afaik, due to the many changes in the file format in R8. It might come back in later versions, but I'm not sure if anything has been said officially. However, I don't think this feature was ever accessible from C.O.F.F.E.E.

I miss this feature. I used the xml export in earlier verisons, painstakingly figuring out what the data represented & writing a parser to read it.
I've had to rethink things with xml export being gone in 8...however, I think a better option might be to write custom xml exporters in COFFEE. This way, you get just the data you want, and you know what it represents. I've started on some coffee code that will make it easy to write out structured xml from COFFEE, and will share the results as they appear.

You might want to check out the Export menu in 8.1 though...

D'oh! I totally missed it.
Oh well, I think I'll keep developing my XML plugin for the moment though...

While we're on the subject, is there any documentation for the XML format?

Gosh, not even in the form of a list of what each data ID attribute means? It's great that these values were added in 8.1 though...now all we need is a key.

Some data IDs are internal. Many correspond to container IDs in the SDK. As I said, however, there's no specific documentation about the file format.
