Neither of these is directly possible. The AST-printing facilities do not print well-formed code, and the XML dumps are both incomplete and not necessarily well structured for anything other than debugging the compiler. That's why both options are hidden behind the compiler's internal -cc1 interface.

What are you actually trying to accomplish?
