gxpp 1.1 released

Since I’m doing released for my other tools I figured it would be a good idea to merge the Makefile and spec changes to gxpp and cut a release too.  You should be able to build an rpm directly from the tarball.

Gxpp is a grep-like utility for XML documents.  It uses XPath expressions instead of regular expressions to query sections of XML documents.  It provides most of the standard grep command line options.

    geat! another nice utility i have to try to make working with xml documents more admin-friendly. ;o)

    btw it looks like something similar to xmlstarlet…

    sample with server.xml from tomcat:
    xmlstarlet sel -t -m Server -v @port server.xml
    8005

    -jhr.

    I tried xmlstarlet before I wrote gxpp and I found it too hard to do simple stuff with. XSLT is pretty complicated to start with. Encapsulating it into a set of command line options doesn’t help make it easier, IMHO. The equivalent gxpp command line would be:

    gxpp /Server/@port server.xml
    8005
