Update XML files using XML query language?

P: n/a
Could I use the XML query language (and with appropriate XML query engine)
to update XML files?

I am pretty sure about querying, but not about updating.

Thanks!

No, currently you can't use it as a "real" update language with insertions
and similar. You can however query the source document, alter it through
transformations/queries and write the result to the original file. That is
probably not as efficient as updating should be.:-)

Thanks for your comments.
Do you know where I could find more information about altering querying
expressions to achieve the updating function?

Thank you!
