XML indexoffset question

by dicty (Sexton)
on Jan 18, 2013 at 18:07 UTC ( #1014101=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
dicty has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

In XML file, there is always an indexoffset value at the end as shown below. What does this indexoffset mean?

...

<offset id="7966" >81673420</offset>

<offset id="7967" >81683532</offset>

</index>

<indexOffset>81686481</indexOffset>

...

Thanks!

Dicty

    I don't see how your question relates to Perl.

    As XML is an abstract data storage format, I suggest you ask the people who you get the files from about the format and the meaning and intention of the tags and their values.

      The problem is resolved. Thank you for your response.

[1nickt]: Petroza to answer your question, no, no special permission is needed to post a question.
[LanX]: did you spam before? :)
LanX has to go/
[ambrus]: I hope we didn't mess up the spam filter rules again.
[ambrus]: Our spam filter rules disallow links to certain domains, and some suspicious pharses that have appeared in previous spam advertising cheap online whatevers.
[LanX]: some servers were lagging today, so I suppose the root cause
[LanX]: ambrus no recent patches
[Petroza]: no i haven't posted anything before. It was a more or less long question with a specific issue. I did post a title and the links i added where only part of the element i was searching within the code (so no purpose other than the question itself).
[1nickt]: Petroza can you go back in your browser to the preview screen, redact the links, and try to submit again?
[LanX]: copy and paste the text into your Petroza's scratchpad please
