gets the elementtree module object to build elements

Calling this function will simply return the ElementTree module object to build out xml Element or ElementTree data manually. This function currently has no parameters.

maci.xmlbuildmanual -> ElementTree Module

Example getting ElementTree Module object and building out xml data using a person concept and dumping the data using xmldump

ET = maci.xmlbuildmanual()

root = ET.Element("person")

name = ET.SubElement(root, "name")
name.text = "John Doe"
age = ET.SubElement(root, "age")
age.text = "30"

tree = ET.ElementTree(root)

maci.xmldump('mydata.xml', tree)

In this example, we got the ElementTree module with the xmlbuildmanual function, and created a new ElementTree object structure to build out our data, assigned the final tree build to a variable, then dumped that data to a file.

Values for the sub-elements must be strings or None.
