Interesting . It's not that I didn't want to use XPROC, rather I had a rethink as to what I was trying to do.

Initially I wanted to pipe in cURLed input to two transforms without persisting the input but now I am thinking that it might be useful to save the input.

Given the other vexing problem I posted on I will take a look at xmlsh - I am definitely losing the man vs machine battle at the mo.

If you don't want to go as far as using XProc, I wonder if xmlsh has anything to offer?
