Surgeon

Today, Marta went to Trento to visit some relatives of hers, so I spent the entire day alone. I’ve studied for a while (I have a OS exam monday, mostly Linux-based on the case studies, even though the kernel shown is a 2.0 at most), and then I spent the entire afternoon rewriting the recent files storage parser using just GMarkup, in order to drop the libxml2 dependency.

Now, after looking at the resulting 3000+ LOC I really need my eyeballs to be removed and cleaned. I had to put tugether a state machine in order to validate the incoming data, and in order to remove part of the if (...) { ... } else if (...) { ... } else { ... } madness resulting of having to deal with an event-based parser.

Anyway, seems that it worked out pretty well.
