Returns the smallest value in a given sequence.
$collation as xs:string
A sequence of values. The optional collation is only used if
the items in the sequence are
The minimum value in the given sequence. The
min() function works with the
following types of values: numeric values (
Given a sequence of numeric values, the XSLT processor returns the smallest number, converting datatypes as necessary. Given a sequence of durations, the XSLT processor returns the shortest of those durations. Given a sequence of strings, the XSLT processor returns the string that appears first in sorted order.
assumes you’ll send it a sequence containing sensible data; if
not, the XSLT processor throws an error. Asking for the minimum
value in the sequence
3.14) returns an error, as you’d expect.
Some notes about how the
min() function works are as
To find the shortest of a sequence of durations, the
values must all be
xs:dayTimeDurations, or they
must all be
can’t mix the two types of durations; if you do, the XSLT
processor throws an error.
If any of the items in the sequence are of type
xs:untypedAtomic, the XSLT processor ...
