Introduction to LibXSLT

LibXSLT is the XSLT C library developed for the Gnome project (but usable outside of the Gnome platform). XSLT itself is a an XML language to define transformation for XML. LibXSLT is based on LibXML2 - the XML C library developed for the GNOME project. It also implements most of the EXSLT set of processor-portable extensions functions and some of Saxon's evaluate and expressions extensions.

Test Suite Notes

If you wish to run the 32-bit test suites in a 64-bit environment (i.e. the 32Bit and N32 sections), you need to use make USE_ARCH=32 check. If you do not include USE_ARCH=32, then the Python tests will fail.

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Install the package

make install

Multilib

32Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" USE_ARCH=32 ./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/xslt-config{,-32}

N32

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" USE_ARCH=n32 ./configure --prefix=/usr \
    --libdir=/usr/lib32 &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/xslt-config{,-n32}

64Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" USE_ARCH=64 ./configure --prefix=/usr \
    --libdir=/usr/lib64 &&
make

Install the package

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/xslt-config{,-64} &&
ln -sfv multiarch_wrapper /usr/bin/xslt-config

Short Descriptions

xslt-config is used to find out the pre-processor, linking and compiling flags necessary to use the libxslt libraries in 3rd-party programs.
xsltproc is used to apply XSLT stylesheets to XML documents.
libxslt.{so,a} provides extensions to the libxml2 libraries to parse files that use the XSLT format.
libexslt.{so,a} is used to provide extensions to XSLT functions.
