That does work for expath file functions, but I can't get the zip functions to work. I wonder if anyone can suggest what I'm doing wrong here. You have to pass a <zip:file> element to the expath-zip:zip:file() function, and the simplest way I can see to do that is to create the zip:file element inside a variable and then pass the variable to the function:

<xsl:variable name="zipFile">
<zip:file href="{$outputFilePath}">
<zip:dir name="META-INF">
<zip:entry name="manifest.xml" src="{concat($tempDir, '/META-INF/manifest.xml')}" method="xml"/>

<xsl:sequence select="zip:zip-file($zipFile/zip:file)"/>

I've also tried with

<xsl:sequence select="zip:zip-file($zipFile)"/>

I've tried using both "zip" and "expath-zip" as the namespace prefix; in all cases I get this error:

Cannot find a matching 1-argument function named {http://expath.org/ns/zip}zip-file().

I know this isn't yet intended to be stable, but I would have thought the function would be accessible even if it fails somehow.

Hi there,

I'm using Saxon PE in Oxygen 15.2 with XSLT 2.0. I'm trying
to use the expath-file functions, which the documentation says are
available. This is a simple version of what I'm trying:



is currently not giving me that error.

Disturbingly, file:exists() is returning true about a file that isn't
showing up in a directory that isn't there on the file system, so I've
clearly got a ways to go with this, but I think that's the correct
namespace so far as Oxygen is concerned.  (Though I am using XSLT 3.0).
