I'm having a hard time making the converter.exe program compile my .xdxf converted enhanced dictionary because my source is a bit messy and may contain unmatched XML tags i.e. <b> </b>, or even ( ).
I get this output when the program crashes:
E:\DicConverter2\DictionaryConverter>converter dict.xdxf eng
Loading dictionary file...
dict.xdxf, line 78723: unclosed xml tag
I've tried to verify what's left unclosed, but cannot locate anything using simple text searches and such. I even tried using xmllint.exe from the libxml2 2.7.6 windows port, but it's not been easy to find the culprit(s).
Perhaps this may be too involved now and a ominous sign is the line where my .xdxf files crashes the converter.exe program, namely:
<i>v. i.</i> To die; to lose life or force. [Obs.] “So iron, as soon as it is out of the fire, <i>deadeth</i> straightway.” <i>Bacon.</i></ar>
Can the converter.exe program be recompiled to give more debug info where/why it's really
