Xerces-C++ is a validating XML parser written in a portable subset of C++. Xerces-C++ makes it easy to give your application the ability to read and write XML data. A shared library is provided for parsing, generating, manipulating, and validating XML documents. Xerces-C++ is faithful to the XML 1.0 and 1.1 recommendations and many associated standards.

More information is available on the The Apache Xerces Project web site.


First you need to decide on the version of the software you want to use. Use

module avail xerces

to check what versions are available. We normally recommend using the latest version available. For example, to load the 3.1.1 version of Xerces use

module load xerces/3.1.1
