Bayes BIF File Format (WEKA)

I've never heard before that there is a standarized format for representing Bayes Networks.
It's called BIF. It didn't fit my need 100% but I was able to import some basic information from BIF XML.

Some info:

Information I needed fom BIF was:
NETWORK[0].NAME - name of the graph
NETWORK[0].DEFINITION[7]  --> nodes

NETWORK[0].DEFINITION[x].FOR - names of nodes
NETWORK[0].DEFINITION[x].GIVEN - edge list (backward)  given in node names
NETWORK[0].DEFINITION[x].TABLE - CPT table for a single node - (Conditional Probability Table)
