In this article we will see how we can get the company information in the XML format. Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable. Company object contains all the information about the company which is related to film industry and has records at IMDb data base.
 

In order to get this we have to do the following 
1. Import the IMDbPY module 
2. Create a instance of IMDB 
3. Get the company object with the help of get_company method which requires movie ID 
4. Get the XML format value here it will be in string by converting the company object into XML 
 


Below is the implementation 
 

Python3

# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "0051941"
  
# getting information
company = ia.get_company(code)
  
# printing company
print(company)
 
print("--------------------------------")
 
# converting company object into XML file
xml_file = company.asXML()
 
# printing some part of the XML file
print(xml_file[:250])

                    

Output : 
 

Marvel Studios
--------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0"?
<!DOCTYPE company SYSTEM "http://imdbpy.sf.net/dtd/imdbpy68.dtd"

<company id="0051941" access-system="http"Marvel Studios</nameMarvel Studios</long-imdb-name</compan


Another example 
 

Python3

# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "0022125"
  
# getting information
company = ia.get_company(code)
  
# printing company
print(company)
 
print("--------------------------------")
 
# converting company object into XML file
xml_file = company.asXML()
 
# printing some part of the XML file
print(xml_file[:100])

                    

Output : 
 

Pixel
--------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0"?
<!DOCTYPE company SYSTEM "http://imdbpy.sf.net/dtd/imdbpy68.dtd"

<company id
