I'm not sure what's holding up my posts (I see responses before I see my
post ;-) but,
I thought I'd post my findings on a quick n dirty test...
testing every node in an xml document,...
...start timer 1,
...30 times <xsl:if test=". = /"><!-- just time test --></xsl:if>
...stop timer 1,
...start timer 2,
...30 times <xsl:if test="not(parent::*)"><!-- just time test --></xsl:if>
...stop timer 2,
I found that the first test (timer 1), was routinely 10-30ms faster than
- my test nodes were between 0-7 levels deep, 500-1,000 nodes in total...
- obvious gc / memory cleanup results were omited
- timer execution times are included, but pressumed minimal, and
