DESCRIPTION

       The  libexslt  library is used to provide extensions to XSLT functions.
       These extensions come from the EXSLT project <http://www.exslt.org/>

USAGE

       To make use of these functions in XSLT the appropriate  namespace  must
       be  defined  on the xsl:stylesheet element.  To enable support for them
       in libxslt(3) you must call the appropriate functions  (listed  in  the
       SYNOPSIS  section)  to  register the extensions.  The xslt-config shell
       script can be used to obtain the necessary flags for the  pre-processor
       and linker.  The supported extensions are:
