Re: Using XSL for creating DOS batch files
Oh, by the way, with FOP, you can make these commands simpler. FOP assumes that the first argument is an FO file and the second is a PDF output target file. So, the following commands do the same thing: fop -fo somefile.fo -pdf somefile.pdf fop somefile.fo somefile.pdf In a batch file, use: call fop somefile.fo somefile.pdf In other words, you only need the -fo, -pdf, and other switches if you do something else. While the Windows batch utility has nowhere near the capability of a real scripting languge, you can get a lot done with it. I use elaborate batch files to do a bunch of error checking, call other scripts to prepare values for use in parameters, call Saxon to create the FO files, and then call FOP to create PDF files.
