Looking to use XQuery as a reporting languageNikolas Everett nik9000 at gmail.com

I've been looking into ways to do reports from one XML data set to another. When I found XQuery just last Friday I thought that I had hit the jackpot! A simple, functional language that both queries and outputs XML. All is going well, but I am having some trouble with output formatting, and I wonder if anyone could help me out. It looks as though function calls can only return three things in XQuery: 1. Some data (xs:string, xs:integer, or whatever) 2. An XML subtree 3. A tuple of XML subtrees My problem is that I have only found one way to return number 3: the FLWOR clauses. I am looking for something slightly more general. I would like to make a function return something more like: <foo>Some Text</foo> <bar>Some More Text</bar> I would read the specs, but they are so huge that I honestly don't know where to start. --Nik -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
