XSH is an XML editing tool/programming language that can be used either interactively or for batch-mode XML processing. It may be used to query and modify XML documents. XPath expressions are used to select parts of XML document to be processed. Both the system shell and Perl are accessible from XSH in a very natural way. XSH uses XML::LibXML bindings of gnome-xml2 library in the background level. Features include (among others) the ability to work with multiple DOM trees at once, filesystem-like navigation within the DOM tree using XPATH, the ability to copy/move nodes within a DOM tree or between two DOM trees, a 'while' statement, and a Perl-like 'foreach' statement that lets you iterate commands over a list of strings or nodes.
