Description

Syd Bauman shared issue on saxon-help list:

"If I try to access a variable that has a long string I get an "XError: looping???" error. [...]

To see a nicely set up (if I do say so myself) demonstration and description of the bug (1), see https://bauman.zapto.org/~syd/temp/transfer/bug_demo.tgz

That tarball includes three files:

  • bug_demo.html: a host HTML file with a detailed description,
  • bug_demo.xml: a source XML document designed to make it easy to see how many words should be reported, and
  • bug_demo.xslt: an XSLT program that does very little above and beyond what is necessary to throw the error.

P.S. Just accessing the string isn't the problem, of course. E.g., string-length() seems to work."
