Pearls-of-XSLT-and-XPath-3-0-Design.pdf

Alan Burstein's insight:

Good stuff from the article:

 

"...many of today’s programming languages have elevated functions to first-class values. In fact, XSLT 3.0 and XPath 3.0 have done so. XSLT 3.0 and XPath 3.0 now allow you to pass functions to a function, create functions that return a function, and assign a function to a variable.


Functions that manipulate functions are called higher-order functions."

lambda.pdf

"The  lambda calculus can be called the smallest universal programming language of the world. The  calculus consists of a single transformation rule (variable substitution) and a single function de nition scheme. It was introduced in the 1930s by Alonzo Church as a way of formalizing the concept of e ective computability. The  calculus is universal in the sense that any computable function can be expressed and evaluated
using this formalism. It is thus equivalent to Turing machines. However, the  calculusemphasizes the use of transformation rules and does not care about the actual machine implementing them. It is an approach more related to software than to hardware.

the xmlsqlninja: Setting up mdq.XmlTransform | XSLT & XML | Scoop.it

mdq.XmlTransform takes two parameters: @xml and @xslt. The data type for both is XML. The first parameter, @xml can be an XML document, an XML fragment or an atomic value such as a string, date or any type of number. The second parameter, @xslt, must be an XML Transform (AKA XSLT stylesheet) and it must be version 1.0. The @xml parameter is what you want to transform, @xslt is how you want to transform it.

What kind of language is XSLT?

What kind of language is XSLT? | XSLT & XML | Scoop.it
What kind of a language is XSLT, what is it for, and why was it designed the way it is? These questions get many different answers, and beginners are often confused because the language is so different from anything they are used to.
Alan Burstein's insight:

This is a great article about XSLT by Michael Kay

XmlTransform can do math, parse strings, perform date calculations and almost anything else SQL can do to data. XSLT solves many complex XML problems better than T-SQL's limited XPath & XQuery functionality.
Alan Burstein's insight:

I was so honored to have my article scooped that I googled scoop.it and found out about this site. Very cool site and idea. This is my first scoup. 

 

Thanks so much Tony!
