Thanks for the answer.
Following your advice i modified my stylesheet like this:

<?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">

"data/input" is the path relative to my xslt where the input files
resist. Now i wonder how i should run saxon9 from the command line.
Saxon9 needs an input file, but now the input files are all defined
inside the stylesheet. I was thinking of something like this:

java -jar saxon9.jar xml2csv.xslt

But this does not work due to the lack of an input file.
Could you please help a bit further?


P.S.: Meanwhile i will generate a simple shell script like Wendell suggested.
That is the most obviously approach that i didn't thought of.
Sometimes too much xslt makes me blind :-)
