Hello all,

Does V-REP has support for XML? Can I save and/or load an scene or an object using XML files.

Kind regards,

Antonio Matta.

Hello Antonia,

V-REP does not directly support XML. Also, scene and model files are not XML, but purely binary, in order to offer very fast loading operations.

You can however easily write XML importers/exporters. Have a look at the source code of the COLLADA importer/exporter, or the URDF importer plugins, which are located in the programming folder (programming/v_repExtCollada and programming/v_repExtUrdf).

Additionally, you can always install Lua extension libraries to have the Lua XML functionality from an embedded script too.
