if you mean an XSLT processor....try sablotron www.gingerall.com, as for xml
parser...it is dependent on trusty expat.

another option is the libxml / libxslt option
which is quite a good implementation

sablotron tends to be ok, there used to be some gaps in their XSLT 1.0
compabitibility and/or their implementation of document() basically means
your external file calls ( they use slightly different file addressing
convention to the rest of the XSLT processors and last time i checked did
not support http:// protocol ..but this may have changed ).

check out the following benchmark results
though of course take them with a grain of salt....

google....no but seriously there is no dedicated site that caters for this
triplet of technologies.

there are some nice JAXP examples at saxon's site, saxon.sourceforge.net.
Note there is not a one to one c equivilent to JAXP.

 I would imagine Xerces ( which i dont touch with a barge pole ) would have
plenty of examples at xml.apache.org ??? have u not checked ???? as for
perl...depends on what level you are interested, for example the now Apache
AxKit project ( xml.apache.org ) is a perfect 'example' of a sophisticated
PERL based application using btw sablotron or perl.

3 article by same author who is good illustrating the various Perl and XML
processing libraries/api's.
an update perl article
little bit older article

should give you a little history.

cheers, James Fuller
