Well, I hope I'm qualified to answer ;-)

1600 XSLT calls in one process is nothing. I know people using XML::LibXSLT in AxKit with MaxRequestsPerChild much higher than that, and no leaks. And it should take absolutely no time at all. Assuming your XML files are no larger than about 4KB, I would guess about 0.2 seconds per file to run (assuming you cache stylesheets), thus taking you in total about 5 minutes for the whole lot. I'm really not sure what you're concerned about.

Though maybe I've got your XSLT complexity way out of whack. I've seen some XSLT transforms take over a second once or twice (though it's rare). So you may be looking at about 25 minutes.

The key though for speed is to cache stylesheets.

One alternative, which I'm hoping Barrie Slaymaker will come on here and describe, is to use a SAX ByRecord machine to process the XML files directly using SAX, no 3 step approach like you've described - just a single simple one-liner.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
