xslt

Transform XML document using XSLT engine

Syntax

result = xslt(source, style, dest)
[result,style] = xslt(___)
xslt(___,'-web')

Description

result = xslt(source, style, dest) transforms an XML document using a stylesheet and returns the resulting document's URL. The function uses these inputs, the first of which is required:

  • source is the filename or URL of the source XML file. source can also specify a DOM node.

  • style is the filename or URL of an XSL stylesheet.

  • dest is the filename or URL of the desired output document. If dest is absent or empty, the function uses a temporary filename. If dest is '-tostring', the function returns the output document as a MATLAB® string.

[result,style] = xslt(___) returns a processed stylesheet appropriate for passing to subsequent XSLT calls as style. This prevents costly repeated processing of the stylesheet.

xslt(___,'-web') displays the resulting document in the Help Browser.

Examples

This example converts the file info.xml using the stylesheet info.xsl, writing the output to the file info.html. It launches the resulting HTML file in the MATLAB Web Browser.

xslt('info.xml', 'info.xsl', 'info.html', '-web')

Tips

MATLAB uses the Saxon XSLT processor, version 6.5.5, which supports XSLT 1.0 expressions. For more information, see http://saxon.sourceforge.net/saxon6.5.5/

For additional information on writing XSL stylesheets, see the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C®) web site, http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL/.
