NotXSLT: XPath processing with caching in Perl
22:05, 18 Apr 2000 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

Following up on his XML::XPath module, Matt Sergeant has released Apache::XPath::NotXSLT, a module that lets you use Perl and XPath to perform transformations quickly.

Claiming that "apache caching tricks" were letting him process "nine requests per second (try that with an XSLT processor!)", Sergeant made an initial release, and then updated it again when he reached fifty requirests per second.

NotXSLT processing is invoked by a style sheet processing instruction, effectively treating this processing as styling. It uses a very simple vocabulary to describe its templates. Setup and usage are documented at Sergeant's site.
