Hi,
I have to write an XSLT which has to read almost all nodes and attribute. more than one time.
and has to write is there any concept of stack or storage that stores the nodes or attributes to write them after words?

Nope, there is not (unless you would do multiple passes)
Variables don't vary in XSLT,
but that usually is not a problem,
since you can process the source tree as many times as you need to and you always have full XPath access to the full tree

Instead of creating a stack with information, just write some XPath that process the tree to give you exact info when you need it

yes but processing is simple but writing is difficult if you are not copying the tree.
Traversing twice same tree will consume more resources.
and XPATH is only good when you know the XML but if its varying then you need to have a foreach loop.

Well, it all depends,
- instead of for-each use apply-templates, you will find that it works a lot more flexible (so writing becomes Not difficult),
 and the major memory consumption usually is in creating the tree, after that most sensible operations are fairly cheap
- you don't need to know the XML for XPath, there are patterns and wild cards (so I don't agree with your clsoing sentence)

Anyway, you asked a very general question which I answered as much as possible given the question detail

If you need more detail, I think you need to be more precise
