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.
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.
Nota: This extension is different than the sablotron extension distributed with versions of PHP prior to PHP 4.1.0, currently only the new XSLT extension in PHP 4.1.0 is supported. If you need support for the old extension, please ask your questions on the PHP mailing lists.
This extension has been moved to the » PECL repository and is no longer bundled with PHP as of PHP 5.0.0.
Nota: If you need xslt support with PHP 5 you can use the XSL extension.
