What's PE stand for?

In general, Gestalt is very slow on large XML source documents.
I doubt if this will improve in less than a year.
Can you raise bugs on the soirceforge tracker please?

--template=initial will run the template named initial.
Abel> 4. The version number output with --version is "3.7", Abel> though the software is shipped as "1.0". Which should it be?
Both. 3.7 is the version number of the Gobo project, of which the Gobo Eiffel XSLT library is an integral part (I think it was at version 3.2 when i started the development). 1.0 is the version number of the Gestalt command-line interpreter, which is a front-end for the library + the addition of network protocols (which lie outside the scope of Gobo).
I know it's confusing, but I don't have a satisfactory solution yet
(--version returns the same string as system-property ('xsl:version')).
Abel> Should I post any findings here or do you rather have Abel> them on the Gestalt list?
On the Gestalt users list please.
