Thank you. I've visited the FSXL web site (http://fxsl.sourceforge.net/), but I don't see a reference to on the "Implemented Functions" list. Is there another web site with this information?

No.


One would notice that there are a lot of fles in the "Tests" directory named

testFunc-<unctuin-name>.xsl

one of them is:

testFunc-filter.xsl



So, for every function in FXSL there is at least one representative
working example/test in the Tests directory.

I have altered slightly the code of testFunc-filter.xsl to be closer
to your problem (the original code is commented out):

    testFunc-filter.xsl
===============
<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
xmlns:f="http://fxsl.sf.net/"
xmlns:myIsEven="myIsEven"
exclude-result-prefixes="f myIsEven"


<xsl:import href="../f/func-filter.xsl"/>


<!-- To be applied on ../data/numList.xml

      Expected result:
              Filtering by IsEven:
	       02, 04, 06, 08, 10,

-->

<xsl:output indent="yes" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>

<myIsEven:myIsEven/>

 <xsl:template match="/">
   <xsl:variable name="vIsEven" select="document('')/*/myIsEven:*[1]"/>

Filtering by IsEven:

   <xsl:sequence select="f:filter(/*/*, $vIsEven)"/>
<!--
   <xsl:for-each select="f:filter(/*/*, $vIsEven)">
     <xsl:value-of select="concat(., ', ')"/>
   </xsl:for-each>
-->
 </xsl:template>

 <xsl:template name="myIsEven" match="*[namespace-uri()='myIsEven']"
  mode="f:FXSL">
   <xsl:param name="arg1"/>

   <xsl:if test="$arg1 mod 2 = 0">1</xsl:if>
 </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>


The result of applying this transformation on the recommended source xml:


numList.xml
==========
<nums>
 <num>01</num>
 <num>02</num>
 <num>03</num>
 <num>04</num>
 <num>05</num>
 <num>06</num>
 <num>07</num>
 <num>08</num>
 <num>09</num>
 <num>010</num>
</nums>


is:


Filtering by IsEven:

   <num>02</num>
<num>04</num>
<num>06</num>
<num>08</num>
<num>010</num>


In this case one could totally eliminate the need to write their own filtering function, by using the mod() operator directly.

Then the XPath expression to get the new document is simply:

f:filter(/*/*, f:compose(f:not(), f:flip(f:mod(),2)))


and the complete xslt code is:



<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:f="http://fxsl.sf.net/" exclude-result-prefixes="f"


<xsl:import href="../f/func-filter.xsl"/> <xsl:import href="../f/func-Operators.xsl"/> <xsl:import href="../f/func-standardXpathFunctions.xsl"/> <xsl:import href="../f/func-flip.xsl"/> <xsl:import href="../f/func-compose.xsl"/>

<!-- To be applied on ../data/numList.xml

      Expected result:
              Filtering by IsEven:
	       02, 04, 06, 08, 10,

-->

<xsl:output indent="yes" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>

 <xsl:template match="/">
   Filtering by IsEven:


<xsl:sequence select="f:filter(/*/*, f:compose(f:not(), f:flip(f:mod(),2)))"/> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet>


Hope his helped.

Do have a look at the

filter()

functio in FXSL.
