So for example, I have a folder with 5 XML files. When I am processing

first value and assign it to this first XML file.
Now, when processing the second XML file, I again go to grab the next
value from the external file, but this time I have to compare this
value with what was assigned to XML file number 1, and if they are the
same, I have to increment this value by 1 before assigning it to the
second XML file.

that, then maybe I can compare the next value by reading that new
