'XMLStarlet' is a toolset for transforming, querying, validating, and editing XML documents and files using a simple set of shell commands. It works in much the same way as sed, awk, diff, patch, etc do for plain text files. It can be used for working with many XML documents at the *NIX command prompt as well as for automated XML processing with shell scripts. Among other features, 'xmlstarlet' can:
-Check or validate XML files -Calculate the values of XPath expressions on XML files -Search XML files for matches to given XPath expressions -Apply XSLT stylesheets to XML documents -Query, modify, format, or edit XML documents -Fetch XML documents using http:// or ftp:// -Browse the tree structure of XML documents -Include one XML document into another using XInclude -Escape/unescape special XML characters in input text -Print a directory as an XML document -Convert XML into PYX format and vice versa
