contrib/xml : Makefile README.pgxml pgxml.sql.in
contrib/xml : xpath.c xslt_proc.c
contrib/xml : TODO pgxml.c pgxml.h pgxml_dom.c
Thanks to the generous support of Torchbox (http://www.torchbox.com), I
have been able to significantly improve the contrib/xml XPath
* XPath set-returning function allows multiple results from an several
XPath queries to be used as a virtual table.
* Using libxslt, XSLT transformations (with and without parameters) are
supported. (Caution: This support allows generic URL fetching from
within the backend as well).
I've removed the old code so that it is all libxml based. Rather than
attach as a patch, I've put the tar.gz (10k!) at
(all files in archive are xml/....).
I think this is worth replacing the contrib version with, even though
the function names have changed (though the same functionality is
there), because it includes a SRF and some SPI usage, in addition to
linking to an external library. And it isn't a big module! Obviously, I
understand that people might prefer to move it elsewhere, or might have
reservations about replacing an existing contrib module with an
incompatible one. I'm open to suggestions.
