postscript xslt
Actually I dont need to render a PS file, but instead I've got to parse an
existing file and try to make sense out of it, as in, I should be able to
extract the data.
How tough would that be with XSLT and what other approach could I follow.
Right now, I'm manually reading the values enclosed in brackets()... which
is only a hack to get to the data...
The will to do, the soul to dare
