    Default [Req] XML Editor

    Hi all,

    An XML Editor would sound useless to some... But hey, Developers need it ! Especially me! I can update my Installer source on the iPhone ! And I have to keep making a lot of PAD files and update them daily as I manage softwares... So an XML Editor for the iPhone would be great !!!

    And the interface should be like MS XML Notepad 2007 !

    There is a command line utility for iPhone called
    plutil
    and you can convert the binary xml file to text xml file in iPhone, then you can use any text editor e.g. notepad++ to edit the converted file

    It is one of the Erica Utilities
    http://ericasadun.com/ftp/EricaUtilities/

    Erica has also ported her utilities to the firmware 2.0 version as well.

    e.g. plutil -c xml1 com.apple.SpringBoard.plist

    plutil: [command_option] [other_options] file...
    Command options are (-lint is the default):
    -convert fmt rewrite property list files in format
    fmt is one of: xml1 binary1

    If you have mac and installed Xcode, it comes with an Application "Property List Editor". plutil is available on Mac OS X as well.
