may I suggest YAML (www.yaml.org) or a subset thereof?
It's a thought. Despite support for a bunch of scripting languages, it's
not clear if there is a C library available for it. However I can't say
I'm thrilled by the syntax, and the specification is supprisingly hefty.
For our purposes, we actually want something that is a little bit
specialized towards the structure of Vobjects, because VOS itself is the
generic data structure that everything fits into.
So I agree, this is a good opportunity to look into designing a text
version of Compact Object Description (COD), so what would that be, Text
Object Description (TOD)? :-)
Off the top of my head, some possible meta-syntaxes we might want to look
at for representing structed data:
S-Expressions (lisp-style syntax)
