Vern HarshmanSubject: Error using "xsltproc" command line
Author: Vern Harshman

Hello All,

I have the below xslt and when I use the "xsltproc" command in UNIX it returns the below error. Can you please assist?


<?xml version="1.0"?>


<xsl:function name="local:name">
<xsl:param name="doc"/>
<xsl:param name="p"/>
<xsl:value-of select="translate($doc/a:dataset/a:metadata/a:item[$p]/@name, ' /', '')"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
<data xsl:exclude-result-prefixes="a local">
<xsl:for-each select="a:dataset/a:data/a:row">
<xsl:for-each select="a:value">
<xsl:variable name="pos" select="position()"/>
<xsl:element name="{local:name(/, $pos)}">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>

Command Line Command and Error returned.

xsltproc does not support XSLT 2.0, see attached XSLT 1.0 solution

Any particular reason you have to use this XSLT processor?

Thank you very much for the quick reply. I will review it and let you know if I have any further questions.

I am receiving an XML file (meta data and xml) that I am using the XSLT to populate the tags with the meta data names. Once this is complete, I need to use some sort of command line (either in UNIX or Windows - still debating on which to use) command to create a new output file to pass to an MQ server to be sent to our vendor.

In answer to your question, I was searching the internet for a xslt processor and found XSLTPROC. Do you have any suggestions on any other products to use? Can Stylus Studio provide a command line processor?

By the way, just curious - where are you located?

Again, Thank you very much for your assistance.
