Xidel is a small command line XQuery interpreter to run queries on 
downloaded X/HTML pages or JSON-APIs. It supports XPath 3.0, XQuery 3.0 
+ JSONiq expressions, compatibility modes for older XPath/XQuery 
versions as well as CSS 3 selectors and custom pattern matching.

The 0.9.8 version improves various things:

- Cookie handling follows RFC 6265 rather than sending all cookies to 
all servers.
- add t:siblings-header/siblings elements to pattern matcher to match 
certain element siblings regardless of their ordering (e.g. table columns).
- add functions x:call-action, x:has-action, x:get-log, x:clear-log to 
give programmatic access to multipage templates and variable changelog.
- add --module, --module-path parameters to load XQuery modules into 
(xpath) queries and properly resolve relative paths for module imports.
- fix system(), file:exists, file:move (override), file:path-to-uri on 
- further minor bug fixes and performance improvements
