Toot toot! That's the sound of my own horn. The January 2006 issue of Dr. Dobbs magazine has an article of mine, XML Transformations using REXML. I don't know if the article will be available for free reading on the Dr. Dobbs Web site, so you may have to buy the magazine to read it. Well worth it, of course. :) (It's also the 30th Anniversary issue.) http://www.ddj.com/ (still showing December 2005) James B. -- http://www.ruby-doc.org - Ruby Help & Documentation http://www.artima.com/rubycs/ - Ruby Code & Style: Writers wanted http://www.rubystuff.com - The Ruby Store for Ruby Stuff http://www.jamesbritt.com - Playing with Better Toys http://www.30secondrule.com - Building Better Tools

Somewhat related to this. The lack of a pure ruby XSLT engine is on occasions annoying, because then I find myself descending to the nether regions of java, PHP and friends :-) I was thinking about the viability of an XSLT doc A that matchs against arbitrary XSLT B and emits ruby code that effectivly performs the same transformation as the original XSLT document B. Eventually the XSLT A would be able to 'self compile' to some ruby code that would replace it. Ie read some XSLT and emit functionally equivilent ruby code. Does this sound like a sensible approach to getting 'pure ruby' XSLT functionality?
