What is XPath?

XPath is an expression language created to facilitate XML document querying or transformation. It can be used to calculate values from the content of an XML document and was developed by the World Wide Web Consortium. It is simpler to create a programming language than it is to comprehend the XML coding and word order of each word in a document. The programmer can handle the text using a greater level of abstraction thanks to XPath. Extensible Language Transformations (XSLT) and XPointer both use and define the language known as XPath. An extensible language is XPath. It makes advantage of the XML Information Set's concept of information abstraction.
