How to run xquery dynamically on file listing from directory

  How to run xquery dynamically on file listing from
	directory
All of the responses on this thread are greatly appreciated!  I had been 
distracted by another priority, but am now revisiting this issue.  To 
answer the questions regarding my environment, I am on a PC running 
Windows 5.1, and trying to get xquery to work in Altova XMLSpy Enterprise 
Edition 8.  Is there something more I should be indicating?  I tried 
downloading Saxon from sourceforge (the .NET version - is this correct? or 
should it be the java version?  I have no idea)...but the Extraction 
Wizard  gave me this error when unzipping the files:  "Error reading the 
file".

Even so, I won't be able to follow the instructions on integration Saxon 
with XMLSpy b/c I don't have access to a unix command line (see 
http://www.altova.com/forum/default.aspx?g=posts&t=1000000527).  I am 
really at a loss as to what to do, if anyone can provide assistance...

For the archives then:

If you are using Saxon then you may also need to use
saxon:discard-document() when processing large collections of XML -
otherwise each one will be held in memory (if that applies to XQuery?)
