I need to make a program to compare several large +100MB XML files, find the difference, and spit out JSON. I have written the comparison code in C++ and it performs great but now when I am getting to the bit about working with the XML data and converting it to JSON I find I'm hitting a lot of walls.
Would it be logical to port the XML comparison code to NodeJS, which may perform slightly slower, but make things a lot easier when it comes to converting XML to JSON and modifying the contents?
Any input on this would be appreciated.
EDIT: Or alternatively, should I keep the computational side of things as a nodejs module in C++?
