XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) Transformations) is a language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents. It is a standard defined by The World Wide Web consortium (W3C). Information about XSLT and related technologies can be found at http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt.
This extension uses Sablotron and expat, which can both be found at http://www.gingerall.com/. Binaries are provided as well as source.
On UNIX, run configure with the --enable-xslt --with-xslt-sablot options. The Sablotron library should be installed somewhere your compiler can find it.
This PHP extension provides a processor independent API to XSLT transformations. Currently this extension only supports the Sablotron library from the Ginger Alliance. Support is planned for other libraries, such as the Xalan library or the libxslt library.
Note: This extension is different than the sablotron extension distributed with versions of PHP prior to PHP 4.1, currently only the new XSLT extension in PHP 4.1 is supported. If you need support for the old extension, please ask your questions on the email@example.com mailing list.
