and then pulling a value from an xsl:variable with the same name as
the data that came from the XML.
Any ideas? :)
how would you do it in C?
Variable names exist only at compile time, you can't manipulate them as
strings at run time.
Change your data structure. Instead of having three variables called $x,
$y, and $z, have a single variable $a whose value is a tree containing
elements x, y, and z. Then you can use path expressions (and, if
necessary, the xx:node-set() extension) to access the components of the
