Does anyone know if future versions of XSLT will allow variables or parameters in the "match" attribute of xsl:key?
In particular, I have a parameterized XSLT stylesheet (using xsl:param), where the param is used to filter what is generated. I'm using keys for Muenchian style grouping. I can generate keys for more than I want, and filter later. However, the input can be several MB., so I'd like to restrict what keys are built for performance reasons. When I hard code equivalent filters on the key match (instead of using filters that reference a variable), I do see enough of a performance difference to want to do this!
As a side note. I sure wish there was an "ends-with" string function in addition to the "starts-with" function. I seem to need it much more often than "starts-with". I'm imitating "ends-with(source, find)" with
But for input of several MB., it takes a bit of a hit that it wouldn't if there was an 'ends-with' function! (yes, I timed the above with a comparable "contains" and "starts-with" variant). Does anyone have a faster way to imitate "ends-with"?
