Writing xml data to file from TCP port

Currently my program code is listening to TCP port and I will be receiviing XML data and the data will be save to a file.

The issue is that the XML data contains the respond data from the server whenever it send back to the client, how can I get rid of the respond data.


respond=ok;blah blah

if there are two responds... it will be

respond=ok;blah blah
respond=ok;blah blah

So I do not want to write the "respond=ok;blah blah" to the xml file. Because once I write that to a file, it will not be in a XML format. Please advice on how can I read the XML data from the TCP port correctly and save it to a file. Thanks.

Read parts of the data in advance (perhaps one line at a time), and only start writing once you've encountered the XML start.
