When VCM uses custom information types to parse files on Linux and UNIX machines, the directives that you define for the custom information type must begin with the PARSER directive.

Mac OS X 10.4 Intel/PPC, Mac OS X 10.5 Intel/PPC Additional Requirements: Office 2004 11.4.0 or later, or Office v.X 10.1.9 or later. Open-source office productivity suite with Microsoft Office.

  • Xml Parsing in Mac OS X. Ask Question Asked 5 years, 10 months ago. Is returning false means it is.
  • Play, share, and connect to your gaming PC with Parsec's game streaming technology. Take your games with you, share them, and play on the go.
  • The plug-in files are written in XML format, and located in the PlugIns folder. Each plug-in file contains one or more plist files. This allows for plist files to be grouped according to your needs. For example, there are several plist files containing information for TimeMachine, the backup utility included in MAC OS.

Each directive is separated by a delimiter, which is typically a space. In some cases, a space is not allowed.

Parser Directive Type

Parser DirectiveMandatory


Separate Directive

TYPEID Directive


Retrieves the unique identifier for the custom information type. This directive is not specified with the other directives. The TYPEID directive should contain only alphabetic and numeric characters, and no white space.

General Directives


(Optional) Sets the regular expression used to identify lines that are comments. You can specify multiple regular expressions separated by the / character. This regular expression is used to match blank lines, invalid data, and comments. You encodewhite space as “[[:blank:]]”.


Path to the file being parsed. Typically not specified.


(Optional) Specifies a filter command used to process the file before the general parser parses the file.


(Optional) Sets the regular expression used to identify comments at the end of data lines. You can specify multiple regular expressions separated by the / character. You encodewhite space as “[[:blank:]]”.


Sets the output field separator. This directive is used by the filter driver and the key generator. Use for testing purposes.


Numeric value used by some parsers as the ordinal value associated with each data element.



Identifies the parser needed to analyze the file.


Sets the Record Separator, which is commonly used when parsing XML files, or when parsing other files where records are not separated by line feeds.



Identifies the InfoType/Basis/TypeIDof the file being parsed, and must be a unique value with no white space.

INI Parser Directives

The INI parser (key/value data) handles all types of Windows-style configuration files, key/value files, and some files that contain blocks of data. The key/value files can use any delimiter, including white space. The delimiter is a regular expression. Any value other than the delimiter is allowed in the value and data blocks.


Advanced directive. In most cases, use the INITYPE directive instead. This directive enables support for data blocks in the configuration files.


Advanced directive. In most cases, use the INITYPE directive instead.


Advanced directive. In most cases, use the INITYPE directive instead.


Advanced directive. In most cases, use the INITYPE directive instead.


Used to configure unusual key/value files with the INITYPE directive, and to set the separator between keys and values in configuration files.


Meta directive used to configure other directives. Directives set by this directive include, but are not limited to, ALLOWBLOCKS, BLOCKSTART, BLOCKEND, and SPATHSTRING.


Advanced directive. In most cases, use the INITYPE directive instead.


Advanced directive. In most cases, use the INITYPE directive instead.


Advanced directive. In most cases, use the INITYPE directive instead.

Sh Parser

The Sh parser extracts data such as environment variables, exported variables, and umask settings from Linux and UNIX shell scripts.


Specifies the list of regular expressions used to extract specific strings from a shell script. Each regular expression is separated by the / character. Lines that match any of the regular expressions are returned in their entirety.


Specifies a list of values, delimited by the / character, and used as the names for the strings extracted by the EXPR directive. The number of names should be the same as the number of regular expressions used in EXPR. Values do not have to be unique.

Tabular Parser

Tabular data usually consists of a grid of data. The separator between fields can be any regular expression.



Controls how data beyond the last field in a tabular file is handled. When set to 0 (default), the last column is treated like other columns. When set to 1, the last column collects all data to the end of the line, which is useful when the last column of the file contains the delimiter used to separate the columns.



Controls whether the first line of the data contains the PLIST value. When the value is 1, the first line of the input data (either command output or a configuration file) that contains data is used to set the names of the columns.



Sets the field separator.



Identifies the column names. Multiple columns are separated by the / character.

Tokenizer Parser

Breaks a file into a series of tokens of varying types. Directives describe the types of tokens to collect and the regular expressions required to collect those tokens.


Provides regular expressions that describe exclusions to data found by the regular expressions listed in PATTS.


Specifies the regular expressions for the token types defined by the PLIST directive. Regular expressions are separated by the value given by the PS directive.


Specifies a list of token types to collect from the file. Each name of a token type is separated by the value of the PS directive.

Tree Parser

Tree-based data is key/value data in which path information is contained in the key.



Sets the field separator.



Reverse index in an element path of the sequence number.



Sets the separator between segments on the left side path.

WFF Parser

The Well Formed Formulae (WFF) parser handles well formed formulae, such as XML, but can be defined to handle any well-structured document.


Name for the element that wraps attributes.


Separates records in an attribute value.


Separates records in a CDATA section.


Regular expression that recognizes a CLOSE.


Separates records in a DATA section.


Regular expression that recognizes an OPEN.


Regular expression that separates terms within a formula.
