Exactly the same thing: XML::XPath (perl module) provides an xpath command
line utility that does the same thing as xml-grep (and did so before
anyone announced xml-grep). Of course XML::XPath probably implements more
of XPath than all Perl XSLT solutions, but then there's nothing preventing
you from using xpath along with a Java XSLT processor...
