   Re: [xml-dev] XML Pipeline

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm not sure why a pipeline wouldn't modify the contents. Isn't that the 
point of pipes? For example, UNIX pipes are used to pass a character 
stream from program A to program B, which modifies that stream and 
passes it to program C, and so on. An XML pipeline, it seems, would do 
the same thing, with the data stored in a document and the programs 
being XML aware.
