 Creating csv from multiple input files
this question has been asked a few times in this list but i couldn't
find an answer that works for me.
I want to process multiple xml-files in one folder and write the
output to one single file.

My input files are very simple and look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

My XSLT ist very simple too and should create a csv-file where the
values are separated by tabulators:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
   <xsl:output name="csv" method="text" encoding="UTF-8"/>
   <xsl:template match="/">
      <xsl:result-document format="csv" href="result.csv">
   <xsl:template match="//objid">
      <xsl:value-of select="concat(.,'&#00009;')"/>
   <xsl:template match="//cdate">
      <xsl:value-of select="concat(.,'&#00009;')"/>
   <xsl:template match="//user">
      <xsl:value-of select="."/>

For a single file this works fine.
But the supposed output after processing all files should be a single
"result.csv" that looks like this:

3196575   15.02.2006   Smith
3196576   15.02.2006   Doe
4194550   07.03.2007   Smith

Given that i don't know the number and names of the files in the input
folder, how can i archive this result?

I'm using Saxon8 for the tranformation but couldn't find out how to
process multiple files on the command line. I also tried Kernow which
makes it easy to pass a folder to saxon, but i didn't manage to create
a single output file. It would be nice if someone could toss me to the
right direction. Is there a pure XSLT-solution or do i have to use
specific command-line options for saxon that i do not know?
