I am looking for a way to shell out to programs via
some sort of XSLT extension and have the returned information available within
my transform. Anything like this available?
Specifically, in saxon 8+ I would like to use
ImageMagick to return info about an image or modify the image.
select="shell(identify -myimage.jpg)" /> <!--return info
<saxon:shell select="convert -rotate 90
myimage.jpg myrotatedimage.jpg" /> <!-- shell out and do something
