Re: Functional Programming, "no side effects" and so
functional programming is a big subject.
True, though it seems the original question was more specific to functional programming as it relates to XSLT, and in this particular case, there is no better source than Dimitre Novatchev's various FXSL (Functional XSLT extension library) related articles, papers, and of course, the FXSL library itself.
Please visit http://fxsl.sourceforge.net/, grab your favorite mid-afternoon snack and beverage of choice, and then indulge in all that the above link has to offer.
