in reply to how to strip XML into Plain Text file

I'm turning into the resident XSLTmonk.

Feed this stylesheet into whichever XSLT processor is handy, along with your file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl=" +ansform"> <xsl:output method="text" encoding="us-ascii" /> </xsl:stylesheet>

This is minimal because in your case the XSLT processor defaults (recurse full tree, printing text nodes) are a perfect fit.

For some Perl code driving an XSL transform, see my example elsewhere from earlier today: Re: MathML 2 ascii?. But if you can install those modules you probably have a commandline XSLT processor installed anyway.

Makeshifts last the longest.
