But xmllimit is native on macOS and xmlstarlet is not:
Fink - Package Database - Package xmlstarlet (Command-line XML manipulation tool)

And while I'm open to installing additional tools, @Stomp, my preference - both for speed and convenience - is to use native tools in the OS stack. However, I still owe you some props as I believe I learned about xmllimit from YOU in another post on these boards, so thank ye, sir.

Ok, you really appreciate native tools? Me too ;-)

Good news. As I wrote before(libxml2 change xpath result separator): The change for newline-separators had been made within the source-code of libxml as of Sep 2018.

I just compiled libxml2 and verified that it works as expected:

Code:
$ xmllint-current --xpath "//SeriesName/text()" data.xml

So it's only a matter of time until it flows downstream into the major distributions. But if one has the need to be really compatible, one better may take other approaches.

...and l like hearing that my efforts contributed to your knowledge.
