You might find the LT XML toolkit , which was designed to provide
exactly this sort of UNIX-style command line flexibility and
composibility, worth a look.
"The LT XML tool-kit includes stand-alone tools for a wide range of
processing of well-formed XML documents, including searching and
extracting, down-translation (e.g. report generation, formatting),
tokenising[, counting] and sorting."
