libxslt - library for transforming XML documents


The libxslt library is the XSLT library developed for the Gnome project. XSLT itself is a declarative language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents, or arbitrary text output using a stylesheet.

The libxslt library is based on libxml2 library developed for the Gnome project. It also implements most of the EXSLT set of processorportable extensions functions and some of Saxon’s evaluate and expressions extensions.
