IGES Import from String


In my project I get a XML-File with a section were IGES-Surfaces stand in (see the attached file). The section doesn't contain the header (no "G" and "S" letters). Is it possible to read in the "D" and "P" data? The onliest method I found is the IGESControl_Reader. But the reader reads only informations from a file. Is there a function to read in strings or char-arrays?

Any idea?
