I added a --fileparam switch to xsltproc command line to enable loading
file content as stylesheet parameter string literal. It also enhance
--stringparam as a side effect. I hope you'll find this useful.

$ xsltproc --param param "2+3" --stringparam stringparam "2+3"
--fileparam fileparam test.txt test.xsl test.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<param>5</param><stringparam>2+3</stringparam><fileparam>Hello World

Why don't you simply use something like

    --stringparam fileparam "$(cat test.txt)"

What if the text is too long for the command line?

Moreover, $() is lossy as it strips the trailing \n characters.
