Re: Progress indicator in Xalan?

Remember, an XSLT stylesheet is a program. It may loop. It may recurse. It may go back and reconsider data from sections of the document previously processed. And its results are dependent not only on the size of the input data, but on its structure and details. There really is no good way for the processor to guess progress on any but the most trivial stylesheets. Try writing progress indicators into your stylesheet, using <xsl:message> or your processor's extension mechanisms. That'll both give you a good idea of how hard this is to automate, and will be more likely to give you useful results. ______________________________________ Joe Kesselman / IBM Research XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
