XMLENCODE

XMLENCODE( xml [, ALL ] )

xmlThe XML to encode.
ALLOptional. Specifies including new line characters in the encoding so the text can be used in attribute definitions.
Return:XMLENCODE returns a single value.

The XMLENCODE function encodes special characters in an XML string (for example, < is converted to &lt) allowing you to use the CSV option on OUTPUT to produce more complex XML files than are possible by using the XML option.

Example:

  d := XMLENCODE('<xml version 1><tag>data</tag>');
  e := XMLDECODE(d);
