in reply to Config files To XML

If I recall correctly, the Cisco commands "write memory" and "copy running-config..." always indent child nodes by one space. I never wrote anything that depended on the indentation, but it certainly looked consistent enough to use in parsing the files. YMMV.

For example, this is a fragment of a lab router config for a 7200:

interface FastEthernet1/0 no ip address duplex full ! interface FastEthernet1/0.1 encapsulation dot1Q 1 native ipv6 address xxxx:1::3/48 ipv6 traffic-filter lab-only in ipv6 ospf 1 area 0 ! gatekeeper shutdown ! ! line con 0 stopbits 1 line aux 0 stopbits 1
So "no ip address" and "duplex full" are child nodes of "interface FastEthernet1/0" because they are indented farther to the right.

There are a few cases where second-level child nodes exist and are indented by two spaces, but I don't have any examples handy. Oh, and by the way, don't try to use the exclamation points in parsing; they are not nearly as consistent as the spacing.
