Kinda / Probably.
XSLT is a transformation that works like this:
[ XSLT Processor ]------> [XML or Text]
So you can't just give it a text or binary file as input.
You can, however, write a script (in Perl or something) to convert your
record-oriented data into a naive XML format, then feed that into XSLT to
get the "proper" xml representation of your data.
How much work the script has to do, and how complicated your XSLT will need
to be all depends on:
1. What does the current record format look like?
2. What do you want the resulting XML to look like?
The short answer is yeah, you can do it. But I wouldn't wager my life on
that proposition without more information.
