[XSLT] [Q] Recursion Question/Concern
I am new to the list, so please forgive me if I am asking something answered elsewhere. I have searched the archive and FAQ and have not found the answer I am seeking. I need to count and number "records" in an XML file. It would seem that recursion is the answer, but I am concerned about performance. When using recursion I have noticed a 10:1 performance decrease over not using recursion. I assume that user error is responsible. If I do not use a recursive function then my template will process in roughly 1 second. I do not get the desired results because I need individual numbered lines. When I use the recursive function then performance goes to roughly 10 seconds. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time. Example of XML file format: <DATA> <RECORD> <INFO1>xyz</INFO1> </RECORD> <RECORD> <INFO1>abc</INFO1> </RECORD> ... </DATA> The desired result would be: 1 xyz 2 abc ... In my XSL document I do the following: <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:call-template name="NumberStuff"> <xsl:with-param name="Counter" select="1"/> </xsl:call-template> </xsl:template> <xsl:template name="NumberStuff"> <xsl:param name="Counter" /> <xsl:if test="count(//RECORD) + 1 > $Counter"> <xsl:value-of select="$Counter"/> <xsl:text>|</xsl:text> <xsl:value-of select"//INFO1"> <xsl:call-template name="NumberStuff"> <xsl:with-param name="Counter" select="$Counter + 1" /> </xsl:call-template> </xsl:if> </xsl:template> __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
