split XML to separate xml files

split XML to separate xml files

split XML to separate xml files

The software I use store its toolbars in one XML file.
<?xml version="1.0"?>

CODE --> xml

<toolbars version="1">

<toolbar id="1" name="my toolbar1">
<command_button command="EDIT SELECT MOVES" bitmap="RTOOL" tooltip="select all moves"/>

<toolbar id="2" name="my toolbar2">
<command_button command=..


My goal is to separate them like


<toolbars version="1">
<toolbar id="1" name="my toolbar1">

<toolbar id="2" name="my toolbar2">

I have no ideas at all, I have some html knowledge, but no xml.
Any help would be appreciated..

RE: split XML to separate xml files

Some tutorials are probably a good starting point.
XML for basic understanding.
XSLT for understanding how to transform an XML document into another XML document (or HTML or text).
XPath for understanding how to reference pieces of an XML document (similar to referencing files and directories within a file system).

Once you have some of this basic knowledge, you should be able to come back with a better problem description. Right now, to me at least, your goal seems to transform one XML document into another, single, XML document. However, the title you gave this thread indicates you want to have multiple XML documents derived from a single XML document. So, please clarify...
