loading a file

Loads xml file data, and returns data as a dictionary.

maci.xmlloaddict -> dict[str, Any]

Basic Example of loading a xml file using default positional parameter

data = maci.xmlloaddict('mydata.xml')

In this example, we simply load xml data from a file using the xmlloaddict function and pass a string of the filepath to the file as an argument to the function to load the xml data, and assign the returned data to a variable.

Access data as you normally would with a dictionary in python.

Note: All values in a xml file are returned as strings.
