WELCOME! ---------------------------------------------------------------

BaseX is a light-weight, high-performance and scalable XML Database
engine and XPath/XQuery 3.1 Processor, which includes full support for
the W3C Update and Full Text extensions. An interactive and user-
friendly GUI frontend gives you great insight into your XML documents.

CONTENTS ---------------------------------------------------------------

 This distribution contains the following directories:

   bin/      start scripts
   data/     database directory
   etc/      examples, catalog files, zipped modules (optional)
   lib/      Java libraries, referenced by the start scripts
   repo/     repository directory for XQuery modules
   webapp/   contents for web applications, including RESTXQ scripts

 To improve your workflows with BaseX, just add the bin/ directory to
 your PATH variable, or move the start scripts to an already added
 folder and modify the PWD variable in the scripts to point to BaseX.
