[xquery-talk] Query Through Multiple Files

  I am wondering if any users on this list would know how to query through multiple files.
  In the input below,

for $read in doc("text.xml")//div,
$read in $ad/p/address

I can only run the search in text.xml, is there some way I can do the same thing throughout all the files in the same directory. I tried using
for $read in doc("*.xml")//div, but the error I got is

  SXXP0003: Error reported by XML parser: Content is not allowed in prolog.
Error on line 6 of file:/home/ajwei/www/text.xquery:
  FODC0005: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Content is not allowed in prolog.
Query processing failed: Run-time errors were reported

I got the same error when I only put in for $read in doc("*.")//div. Is it possible to parse through several files with only ONE XQuery file?

I would appreciate any hints on this.
