best command-line XPATH parser?

I need to find the best command-line XPATH html/xml parser.

With some research I found two command-line parsers that supports the very recent XPATH 3.0:
- Basex
- Saxon-PE

Are they the best command-line XPATH html/xml parser on the market?

you may want to try xsltproc http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/xsltproc2.html
that was years ago but it used to be faster and more robust than saxon while using reasonably little resources. i'm unsure the version it supports. i saw 2.0 was implemented mid 2k though

i don't remember using baseX

I looked at that page but xsltproc doesn't cite "XPATH".
What's the specific name of tool to download are where can I download it?
and what's the command-line for extracing an XPATH nodes-set from an html local file?

i think i incidentally answered in your other thread. using xpathtool should do the trick. it is a wrapper around xsltproc that lets you execute an xpath query and produces the xml output. i assume it barely sets up a 3 lines xslt that selects the given xpath query on the file read from stdin
