I am looking for the XML Package for Windows or any package, which would
enable me to use the function "xmlTreeParse". In a thread dating from
2001, the same question is raised:

As for Feeney compiling from source is not a preferable option for me, as
I have no experience on that. In the link provided by Uwe Ligges, I could
not locate the file I am looking for (xml.** zip).

Thanks a lot for your help,
