This is a Perl module to parse XSL Transformational sheets. For a
description of the XSLT, see http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt. Currently, it
uses XML::Parser and XML::DOM, but an effort is being made to use
XML::Parser is a Perl extension interface to James Clark's XML parser,
expat. It requires at least version 5.004 of perl and can be found on
XML::DOM is a Perl module that allows XML::Parser to build an Object

To configure this module, cd to the directory that contains this
README file and type the following.
Then to build you run make.
Run the tests:
If you have write access to the perl library directories, you may then
install by typing (as superuser):
If you want to install this module somewhere other than the standard location
then you should use:
perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/location/of/libs
at the first stage above and then in a program that wants to use the module
you should put:
use lib qw(/locations/of/libs/lib/perl5);
early on in the program.
This module requires XML::DOM (and its dependency XML::Parser) and also
requires Test::More to perform its tests.
Since version 0.50 it also depends on XML::DOM::XPath which removes some of
the pain with parsing XPath expressions
