The XML package allows one to read XML files from R and to customize
the input to desired input files. But there is no general way to read
XML and convert it to a specific data format. This is because XML
really is an eXtensible language and can be used to markup arbitrary
content. If you can tell us how the .xml file was generated and its
its general structure, it is possible that there are or we can create
handlers for a general format.
