RE: [xml-dev] Re: [docbook-apps] Small!! Lightweight!! xsltprocessor which is standalone!! and runs Docbook/XSL stylesheets?

ksh still is not able to parse XML.
It has lots of bells and whistles but it doesn't understand XML nor XML trees , nodes , xpath , etc.
Try parsing an XML document with ksh and let me know how that goes.

If you are looking for a shell like program that understands xml, consider xmlsh.
but its Java based not C ...
It does, however, know how to parse XML and handle it as a first class citizen, as opposed to ksh which works on lines and strings.

Curious what is the hard requirement for a particular C version for processing XML ?
Perhaps discussing more the environment, data flow, and requirements might elicit better responses.

My guess from the various emails is you are looking for a solution which is not easily available with "XSLT Like" implementations.
Is XML itself even a requirement ? 
Is there seperate server and client requirements ? that is could a server pre-process the docbook data into a format which suits your contstrained environment ?

Liam, while ksh93 is a POSIX and SUS conforming shell, it has enough
extra features which rival perl and python in functionality, including
compound variables (like C struct), arrays/trees, types (like JAVA/C++
classes), pattern matching (beefed up POSIX egrep, with optional
and/or/xor operators). It makes it rather easy to make parsers and
processing engines.
Just, some one has to do the effort, if all other options are exhausted.

Help viewer will only help if it would work with telnet and ssh, too.
