Debian (which is awesome) has the aolserver4-nsxml package, but it doesn’t come with xslt support compiled in. So I’ve downloaded the source and am trying to build it with xslt support. In the Makefile:
ifdef LIBXSLT MODLIBS = -L/usr/lib -L/usr/lib -lxml2 -lxslt CFLAGS += -DDO_XSLT -I$(LIBXML2)/include/libxml2 -I$(LIBXSLT)/include else MODLIBS = -L/usr/lib -lxml2 CFLAGS += -I/usr/include/libxml2 endif
Hmmm, not sure how to work with that, maybe I’ll just set LIBXSLT to the path where its located?
I set LIBXSLT = /usr, and that seems to make it try to compile in xsl support, but I get these compilation errors:
nsxml.c:2240: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘xmlMemSetup’ nsxml.c:2240: error: ‘xmlFreeFunc’ undeclared (first use in this function) nsxml.c:2240: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘ns_free’ nsxml.c:2245: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘xmlInitMemory’ nsxml.c:2247: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘xmlSetExternalEntityLoader’ nsxml.c:2247: error: ‘xml_load_entity’ undeclared (first use in this function) nsxml.c:2249: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘xmlInitParser’ nsxml.c:2251: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘xmlSubstituteEntitiesDefault’ nsxml.c:2252: error: too many arguments to function ‘xsltSetGenericErrorFunc’ make: *** [nsxml.o] Error 1
Sweet! I somehow got it to work just by trying a few different attempts! Here’s what worked:

This is very very cool! :-)
TODO: Add support for parsing XSLT files - this is an absolute must as most xsl templates use imports and includes these days.
