XML and shell scripting

Good morning!

Is anyone out there using shell scripting to parse XML? How about using an XSL style sheets in a shell script? Is that even possible? What I am wanting to do is use an XSL stylesheet to display data from my database (through an SQL / XML query) to clients via my Apache server. Any help is appreciated, thanks! :)

writing an xml parser in any shell scripting is crazy and a huge waste of computing resources. I suggest perl (5.8) and some add on modules found here:
