XSL-T to map a D(A)G
Hi all, I've an XML file that describes a DG and am looking for an xsl-t to map this into a SVG/PNG image. The XML consists of a couple of nodes with links inbetween. The links are direckted, and one node is the start. something like: <graph start="1"> <node id="1"> <link to="2" /> <link to="3" /> </node> <node id="2"> <link to="4" /> </node> <node id="3" /> <node id="4" /> </graph> this should be mapped into: .---. | 1 | `---' | .-----^-----. | | .---. .---. | 2 | | 3 | `---' `---' | .---. | 4 | `---' I know that such a mapping is not easy and due to the scructur of the XML it is possible to created the strangest graphs :-( But I'd be happy just do map a DAG, ignorring all the backward references. I don't need this immediatly, because this functionality will only be the suggar for my current project. Anyway, has anyone ever written a D(A)G mapper in XSL-T? Or should I just forget XSL-T for this and use a "real" programming language. Thanks, Goetz.
