XSLT processing module for Apache 2.x based on libxml2

This package provides an Apache 2 module able to parse XML data using XSLT stylesheets on the fly. It differs from many other mod-xslt since it uses libxml2 and libxslt library, and provides: o standard compliant way of processing PI (like <?xml-stylesheet...). o a standard API, usable from other Web Servers (right now, Apache 2.x is supported). o allows XSLT stylesheets to access GET variables, to set output headers or to fetch information about the web server being used. o provides an internal language to choose the stylesheet to load. o full support for exslt. o is able to parse dynamically generated documents on Apache 2.x, like PHP or cgi-bin output o provides a complete set of documentation and command line tools


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
