I am reading in values from a complex xml file but am unable to read values that contain a forward slash ('/').
For example: <key>Year</key><integer>2004</integer> can not be read because of these slashes?
Can anyone please tell me how to read these values as strings?
XML::toString() and XML::toXMLString() methods return a string.
These methods can be applied on strings to find location of '/'
However your problem seems to be that of accessing the values "Year" and "2004".
To do this, you can use e4x to access fields.
var xml:XML= <XML><key>Year</key><integer>2004</integer></XML>
use xml.key and xml.integer to access the fields
Hope this helps
