I'm having problems with a sort.
I wish to sort some xml, and indent the result. I can do the indent, but the
sorting is proving a problem.
My xml will be in the format of the below, though the element names may
differ per document.
<value2> asd </value2>
I want to sort all the "item_elem" elements based on the value of the
As per abovve, the names of these elements are dynamic, and this is where I
am having difficulty.
I.e., in another document, "root_elem", "item_elem" and "valueX" could have
different names, but the structure is the very same.
I need to sort the children of the root element by _their_ first child.
Is there a generic way to do this ?
Can the result be indented in the same operation ?
Any help appreciated.
