Pass Parameter to XSLT Using PERL

I need to know how to pass a parameter from PERL to an XSLT when using
that XSLT to transform XML. For instance, I'd like to pass a paramter
that I retrieve from the queryString and pass it into XSLT which will
create my HTML.

Here's what I have for the basic transformation:

use XML::XSLT;/

$xmlfile = "resume.xml ";
$xslfile = "resume.xsl ";

$parser = XML::XSLT->new ($xslfile);
$parser->transform($xml file);
$parser->print_result() ;

Does anyone know what I would need to pass the paramter?

Actually, I figured out (in theory) how to pass a parameter to an XSL.
I just added a string into the args:

$parser->transform($xml file, test => "'hello world'");

Now the problem seems to be that the XSL is ignoring it's parameters
and variables. Perhaps the parser is set to not work with these by
default or something? Man, what a pain is the ass!

Does anyone know how to get PERL to interpret variables and params in
an XSLT?

FYI: this newsgroup is defunct. You might want to try
comp.lang.perl. modules for this question (and comp.lang.perl. misc for
general perl questions in the future).

All, I am relatively new to XML and I have what may sound like a dumb question. I want to pass a query string variable to my xml document and filter the output based on that variable. For example, if I type in www.mysite.com?geid=0000123468 I want to display only AccessReview/Report where GEID='0000123468'. I appreciate any help you can provide. Corey

I think I've gotten the hang of XML and XSLT...at least enough to produce the results I'm looking for. I now need to take the next step and use ASP.NET (using VB.NET) to take the xml and send it to the xslt along with a parameter and get xhtml returned. The catch is that I'm not finding any samples of how to do that. I can find (as usual) some C# examples, and a few VB.NET for client apps samples, but nothing for ASP.NET using VB.NET.

With the XSLT 1.0 engine that I was forced to use, I have to parse old XML scripts where the number (to be parsed and saved into $EPISODE_NUMBER_RAW) that I want to parse is written with a comma seperator if it goes beyond 3 digits. i.e. the variable might be parsed as a string '1,324' or a number 56, depending on which XML file I have. I was trying to get rid of the comma seperator by breaking the string into two parts (that number will...
