XSugar is a proof of concept tool for mapping textual content between a flat file schema and XML format. It performs statistical analysis to establish if transformations between the two formats are bi-directional, enabling content that has been converted into an XML format to be re-exported to the original flat file structure, or vice-versa. To validate the conversion, a schema must exist for source and destination formats, e.g. a bespoke XFlat encoded XML document that contains a definition of the structure of a class of flat files, an XML schema.
