Re: Nmap and XML Output Questions

IE should open it, and i don't see why excel like applications would
need to or want to open xml files that have nothing to do with
'excel-like' activities... I have an app that successfully reads nmap
output but since its pretty pathetic right now i'll wait either a
month or untill its not so embarassing before i release it'.  Database
servers like DB2 and MSSQL i think even some mysql and postgresql
implementations can read xml files and store them in databases (just
FYI, its better then excel tables)

The only 'thing' (can't say a problem) i see with the nmap xml output
is that the OS/machine type is free text so subsequent processing with
a front-end or other type of application is kind of unclean.

How do other use the Nmap XML output on Win32??  I found that OpenOffice.org Calc could not open the XML file as 
anything other then a plain text file.  MS Office 2000 could open the XML file in Excel, but Excel 2003 does not , 
not sure what M$ changed there.

How doe others use the XML output and  what applications have successfully read the output other than your custom 
applications?
