Re: [xslt] output method="text" in C program (SOLVED)

I am desperately trying to apply an xslt that is supposed to produce text and
not xml.

The transformation works with xsltproc(.exe) as expected, which suggests the
stylesheet is OK.

I wonder how to apply the transformation in a C program. For xml output, I have
been using successfully xsltApplyStylesheet, but this is supposed to produce
xml, as the result is an xmlNodePtr. What would be the correct way to either get
a char-Buffer or produce an ouput file directly? I could change the output
method to xml and read the content of the root element, but I guess there is a
better way.

Looking at xsltproc.c, there seem (at first glance) no special provisions
required for text output. Unfortunately, if I use xsltApplyStylesheet naively
(as it works with output method="xml") , the application crashes.

Any enlightenment is highly appreciated,

The error was completely unrelated to libxslt. To enlighten myself:

For output method="text" xsltApplyStylesheet produces an xml document where the
result text is content of the root element. xsltSaveResultToFile then writes
exactly this content.
