Manikandan SurendranathSubject: Regex replace
Author: Manikandan Surendranath
Date: 18 May 2005 01:10 PM
Hi,

Recently I learnt that there is no processor independant replace() function avaliable in xslt, though the specification says so. Therefore I think regex will not be available too. Here is a solution I am looking for, I want to search a number followed by one or more whitespace and then a unit of measurement, like '9 mm' and output it to be '9 mm'. Can somebody guide me to do this?

Thanks

Hi,
the reason why there is no processor independent replace() function is because the XSLT 1.0 specs do not specify such a function. Maybe you are referring to the EXSLT extension library (http://www.exslt.org), but that's a "community initiative", not a standard.
If you are looking for a processor independent way of doing a regex-based replace you should consider moving to XSLT 2.0, that has the fn:replace() function.

Hope this helps,
Alberto

What should I be doing for that. Below is my style sheet declaration. I think I am using XSLT 2.0. Am I not?

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" exclude-result-prefixes="xlink" version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

The processors I am using is Saxon 6.5 & MSXSL 4.0 and client is using Saxon 7 & MS .NET v1.1 XSLT processor (XLST version 1.0 compatibility).

Yes your XSLT is marked 2.0.
The only XSLT 2.0 processor available today is Saxon 8.x.

If you don't have control on which processor your clients run you have to stick with 1.0 and its restrictions.

Hope this helps
Ivan

Well thanks. I'll scribble some workarounds then.
