> 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
> - 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
