XSH is intended to query and manipulate XML and HTML documents. Use one of the open/open-*/create commands to load an XML or HTML document from a local file, external URL (such as http:// or ftp://), string or pipe. While loading, XSH parses and optionally validates (see validation and load-ext-dtd) the document. Parsed documents are stored in memory as DOM trees, that can be navigated and manipulated quite similarly to a local filesystem.
In the current version, XSH is only able to save documents locally. To store a document on any other location, use ls command and pipe redirection to feed the XML representation of the document to any external program that is able to store it on a remote location.
Example 3. Store XSH document DOC on a remote machine using Secure Shell
xsh> ls DOC:/ | ssh my.remote.org 'cat > test.xml'
