RE: hoe to use "(" within a variable
Firstly, you need to double-delimit your select attribute: select="foo" means "select the foo element"; if you want to select a string, you need to put select="'string'". The double quotes are the usual attribute delimiters, and the single quotes then indicate string delimitation. You will still have to escape the illegal characters within your string, however, so it might be much easier just to give the string as the variable content, rather than using the select attribute: <xsl:variable name="entering_log">sprintf(log_str, "\n%s: %d: %s: %s", __FILE__,__LINE__,fn, "Entering"); log_func();</xsl:variable> Cheers, Stuart > -----Original Message----- > From: Vinoth Palaniappan [mailto:vinoth@xxxxxxxxxxxx] > Sent: 12 August 2002 11:17 > To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > Subject: hoe to use "(" within a variable > > > Hi, > I need to define a variable in XSL sheet as follows: > <xsl:variable name="entering_log" select='sprintf(log_str, > "\n%s: %d: %s: > %s", __FILE__,__LINE__,fn, "Entering"); log_func();' ></xsl:variable> > I'm getting an error: "Could not find function: > sprintf()" from the > XSL engine.
