xslt_process — Applies a stylesheet contained in one string to XML contained in another, placing the result in a third string.


boolean xslt_process(xslt_stylesheet, xml_data, result[, base_URI]);
string xslt_stylesheet: Stylesheet to apply
string xml_data: XML to be transformed
string result: Result of transformation
string base_URI (optional): Base URI


TRUE on success; FALSE otherwise.


This is a very simple way to apply a stylesheet contained in one string ( xslt_stylesheet ) to XML data in another string ( xml_data ), optionally supplying a base URI at the same time. Among other things, this would be useful when your stylesheet and XML document are not stored in files; for instance, when you've fetched them from a database. After a successful transformation, the results will be placed into the string result .


Example 1144. Applying a stylesheet in a string to an XML document in a string.


$result = '';
$xml_doc = join('', file(''));
$stylesheet = join('', file('slashdot.xsl'));
/* Apply the stylesheet. */
if (xslt_process($stylesheet, $xml_doc, $result)) {
    echo "<b>Successful; got:</b><hr>$result<hr>\n";
} else {
    echo "<b>Got error:</b><hr>" . xslt_error() . "<hr>\n";
