hi all,
TASK: i want to exctract certain data from a xml-file, which contains programdetails of several tv channels, and put it into a txt-file (one textfile for each tvchannel). the programm should read from the xml file the data starting from 6:00 am of the next day till 5:59 am of the day after that. (this will be executed once a day for every following day.) 

QUESTIONS: can my problem be solved with xsl/xslt, or do i need another programminglanguage (vbscript or c)? how will get xsl sysdate? there are 22 tvchannels in the xmlfile, for every channel i need a different textfile. how to pass parameter?

example of output aaa.txt :  
aaa  21.09.2002  16:00:00  News
aaa  21.09.2002  17:00:00  Weather

My first XSL-FILE, which does the job wihtout checking for the dates and only for one tvchannel:(
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl = "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"; version = "1.0" > 
<xsl:output method = "text" media-type = "text/plain" encoding="ISO-8859-1"/>
<xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>
<xsl:template match="RESOURCE[@id='EVENTLIST_AAA']"> 
	<xsl:for-each select="EVENTLIST/EVENT">
		<xsl:if test = "DURATION[@time!='00:00']">
			<xsl:text>aaa	</xsl:text>
<xsl:template match = "STARTTIME">
	<xsl:value-of select = "@date"/>
	<xsl:text> </xsl:text>
	<xsl:value-of select = "@time"/>
	<xsl:text>	</xsl:text>
<xsl:template match = "SHORTEVENTDESC">
<xsl:template match = "EVENTNAME">
	<xsl:value-of select = "."/>
