Re: Re: Incrementing a Global variable
Would it not be nice if both kind of variables are available -- the present kind ( <xsl:variable ), and a second kind of variable (e.g. xsl:variable2 ) which can increment. It will be the programmer's responsibility to use xsl:variable (non-incrementable) or xsl:variable2(incrementable).. If somebody wishes to produce a side-effect free program, he/she can use xsl:variable (which will facilitate that objective) ; if somebody wishes to use a incrementable variable , he/she can use the other one ..
