I am toying with using XML to mark up the meta-data for a large binary data
object. However our requirements are for the large binary data (8M!) to live
in the same file as the XML. Is there any way to tell the XML parser to give
up on parsing when it reads some symbol (like Perl does when it reads
__END__)? No I can't just put the data in a CDATA section, firstly it may
well contain the ]]> code to close it, and secondly the data is only
required as a stream, not loaded up all at once.
How is representing true arbitrary data done in XML?
