shouldn't be -ve.

Now we have requirement that client want a document format other than C
++ code in which he can specify this rule in mathematical formula and
give it to Optimiser. So I want to know is there a standard way like
XML or something which can be used to interpret formula given in non-
Cpp format and used it.

What I think you're asking is "is there something that is non-C++ that
would let us do our thing" (whatever that "thing" might be). If it's
non-C++ that you need, why are you asking in a C++ language newsgroup?

Generally speaking, there are probably ways to express some formulae in
a language that would be open for converting it into executable code (if
that's what you're after). It's called an "interpreter" and there are
literally thousands of those out there. Do a web search to start.

I do not respond to top-posted replies, please don't ask
