# xsl for-each

## xsl for-each

(OP)
I have the following XML code:

<n-grams-sorted analysis="N_GRAM_TOKEN2" range="Total Set" types="33459" tokens="50285">
<n-gram position="1" frequency="387" probability="0.0077">x =</n-gram>
<n-gram position="2" frequency="319" probability="0.00634">! =</n-gram>
<n-gram position="3" frequency="295" probability="0.00587">= [i]</n-gram>
<n-gram position="4" frequency="286" probability="0.00569">? =</n-gram>
<n-gram position="5" frequency="221" probability="0.00439"> =</n-gram>
<n-gram position="6" frequency="186" probability="0.0037">. =</n-gram>
<n-gram position="7" frequency="182" probability="0.00362">:p =</n-gram>

....

<n-gram position="90" frequency="25" probability="0.0005">? :p</n-gram>

How do you get the first 30 with a <xsl:for-each> ?

<xsl:for-each select="//n-gram[@position &lt; $position]"> ### RE: xsl for-each Hi KevinDW, 1.) Nice smilie in your code! 2.) This does not work this way. It seems the only way is to use a recursive template. Found this snippet: #### CODE <xsl:template name="recurse_till_ten"> <xsl:param name="num">1</xsl:param> <!-- param has initial value of 1 --> <xsl:if test="not($num = 10)">
...do something
<xsl:call-template name="recurse_till_ten">
<xsl:with-param name="num">
<xsl:value-of select="\$num + 1">
</xsl:with-param>
</xsl:call-template>
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>

Adjust from 10 to 30 and put your processing code at the do something position.

Hope this helps.

Hey MakeItSo,

Your code helps me a lot.

But I have just one little question:

I want to select "position"
from

<n-gram position="1" frequency="387" probability="0.0077">x =</n-gram>

with

<xsl:value-of select="./position"/>

But it's not correct?
Do you know the solution for this one?

Kevin

### RE: xsl for-each

Hi Kevin,

"position" is an aatribut, so you need to address it as "@position"
