While XSLT is used internally by Junos to power its on-box scripting capabilities, it is not the most intuitive or efficient of languages, so SLAX was created to simplify on-box script programming and make it more comfortable to write. This reference guide provides descriptions and examples of all of the basic components of the SLAX language including its statements, operators, functions, elements, templates, and default parameters.

At the next rev of the book I will be taking out the cross-reference to the non-existing book.  I apologize for the errata.
