xml-coreutils (GPL 3 or higher)
The GNU coreutils are a collection of basic system utilities which
make the shell a powerful interactive system for text processing, and
represent decades of accumulated wisdom. However, the
recent trend of using XML documents for everything under the sun is posing

easily manipulated by these classic line oriented tools.
The aim of xml-coreutils is to retrofit a natural XML processing capability
on existing shells, which can coexist and interact seamlessly with the classical tools. Find out more by reading this:
