DESCRIPTION
       The xmllint program parses one or more XML files, specified on the command line as
       XML-FILE (or the standard input if the filename provided is - ). It prints various types
       of output, depending upon the options selected. It is useful for detecting errors both in
       XML code and in the XML parser itself.

       xmllint is included in libxml(3).

OPTIONS
       xmllint accepts the following options (in alphabetical order):

       --auto
	   Generate a small document for testing purposes.

       --catalogs
	   Use the SGML catalog(s) from SGML_CATALOG_FILES. Otherwise XML catalogs starting from
	   /etc/xml/catalog are used by default.

       --chkregister
	   Turn on node registration. Useful for developers testing libxml(3) node tracking code.

       --compress
	   Turn on gzip(1) compression of output.

       --copy
	   Test the internal copy implementation.

       --c14n
	   Use the W3C XML Canonicalisation (C14N) to serialize the result of parsing to stdout.
	   It keeps comments in the result.

       --dtdvalid URL
	   Use the DTD specified by an URL for validation.

       --dtdvalidfpi FPI
	   Use the DTD specified by a Formal Public Identifier FPI for validation, note that this
	   will require a catalog exporting that Formal Public Identifier to work.

       --debug
	   Parse a file and output an annotated tree of the in-memory version of the document.

       --debugent
	   Debug the entities defined in the document.

       --dropdtd
	   Remove DTD from output.

       --dtdattr
	   Fetch external DTD and populate the tree with inherited attributes.

       --encode ENCODING
	   Output in the given encoding.

       --format
	   Reformat and reindent the output. The XMLLINT_INDENT environment variable controls the
	   indentation. The default value is two spaces " ").

       --help
	   Print out a short usage summary for xmllint.

       --html
	   Use the HTML parser.

       --htmlout
	   Output results as an HTML file. This causes xmllint to output the necessary HTML tags
	   surrounding the result tree output so the results can be displayed/viewed in a
	   browser.

       --insert
	   Test for valid insertions.

       --loaddtd
	   Fetch an external DTD.

       --load-trace
	   Display all the documents loaded during the processing to stderr.

       --maxmem NNBYTES
	   Test the parser memory support.  NNBYTES is the maximum number of bytes the library is
	   allowed to allocate. This can also be used to make sure batch processing of XML files
	   will not exhaust the virtual memory of the server running them.

       --memory
	   Parse from memory.

       --noblanks
	   Drop ignorable blank spaces.

       --nocatalogs
	   Do not use any catalogs.

       --nocdata
	   Substitute CDATA section by equivalent text nodes.

       --noent
	   Substitute entity values for entity references. By default, xmllint leaves entity
	   references in place.

       --nonet
	   Do not use the Internet to fetch DTDs or entities.

       --noout
	   Suppress output. By default, xmllint outputs the result tree.

       --nowarning
	   Do not emit warnings from the parser and/or validator.

       --nowrap
	   Do not output HTML doc wrapper.

       --noxincludenode
	   Do XInclude processing but do not generate XInclude start and end nodes.

       --nsclean
	   Remove redundant namespace declarations.

       --output FILE
	   Define a file path where xmllint will save the result of parsing. Usually the programs
	   build a tree and save it on stdout, with this option the result XML instance will be
	   saved onto a file.

       --path "PATH(S)"
	   Use the (space- or colon-separated) list of filesystem paths specified by PATHS to
	   load DTDs or entities. Enclose space-separated lists by quotation marks.

       --pattern PATTERNVALUE
	   Used to exercise the pattern recognition engine, which can be used with the reader
	   interface to the parser. It allows to select some nodes in the document based on an
	   XPath (subset) expression. Used for debugging.

       --postvalid
	   Validate after parsing has completed.

       --push
	   Use the push mode of the parser.

       --recover
	   Output any parsable portions of an invalid document.

       --relaxng SCHEMA
	   Use RelaxNG file named SCHEMA for validation.

       --repeat
	   Repeat 100 times, for timing or profiling.

       --schema SCHEMA
	   Use a W3C XML Schema file named SCHEMA for validation.

       --shell
	   Run a navigating shell. Details on available commands in shell mode are below (see the
	   section called "SHELL COMMANDS").

       --xpath "XPath_expression"
	   Run an XPath expression given as argument and print the result. In case of a nodeset
	   result, each node in the node set is serialized in full in the output. In case of an
	   empty node set the "XPath set is empty" result will be shown and an error exit code
	   will be returned.

       --stream
	   Use streaming API - useful when used in combination with --relaxng or --valid options
	   for validation of files that are too large to be held in memory.

       --testIO
	   Test user input/output support.

       --timing
	   Output information about the time it takes xmllint to perform the various steps.

       --valid
	   Determine if the document is a valid instance of the included Document Type Definition
	   (DTD). A DTD to be validated against also can be specified at the command line using
	   the --dtdvalid option. By default, xmllint also checks to determine if the document is
	   well-formed.

       --version
	   Display the version of libxml(3) used.

       --walker
	   Test the walker module, which is a reader interface but for a document tree, instead
	   of using the reader API on an unparsed document it works on an existing in-memory
	   tree. Used for debugging.

       --xinclude
	   Do XInclude processing.

       --xmlout
	   Used in conjunction with --html. Usually when HTML is parsed the document is saved
	   with the HTML serializer. But with this option the resulting document is saved with
	   the XML serializer. This is primarily used to generate XHTML from HTML input.

SHELL COMMANDS
       xmllint offers an interactive shell mode invoked with the --shell command. Available
       commands in shell mode include (in alphabetical order):

       base
	   Display XML base of the node.

       bye
	   Leave the shell.

       cat NODE
	   Display the given node or the current one.

       cd PATH
	   Change the current node to the given path (if unique) or root if no argument is given.

       dir PATH
	   Dumps information about the node (namespace, attributes, content).

       du PATH
	   Show the structure of the subtree under the given path or the current node.

       exit
	   Leave the shell.

       help
	   Show this help.

       free
	   Display memory usage.

       load FILENAME
	   Load a new document with the given filename.

       ls PATH
	   List contents of the given path or the current directory.

       pwd
	   Display the path to the current node.

       quit
	   Leave the shell.

       save FILENAME
	   Save the current document to the given filename or to the original name.

       validate
	   Check the document for errors.

       write FILENAME
	   Write the current node to the given filename.

ENVIRONMENT
       SGML_CATALOG_FILES
	   SGML catalog behavior can be changed by redirecting queries to the user's own set of
	   catalogs. This can be done by setting the SGML_CATALOG_FILES environment variable to a
	   list of catalogs. An empty one should deactivate loading the default /etc/sgml/catalog
	   catalog.

       XML_CATALOG_FILES
	   XML catalog behavior can be changed by redirecting queries to the user's own set of
	   catalogs. This can be done by setting the XML_CATALOG_FILES environment variable to a
	   list of catalogs. An empty one should deactivate loading the default /etc/xml/catalog
	   catalog.

       XML_DEBUG_CATALOG
	   Setting the environment variable XML_DEBUG_CATALOG to non-zero using the export
	   command outputs debugging information related to catalog operations.

       XMLLINT_INDENT
	   Setting the environment variable XMLLINT_INDENT controls the indentation. The default
	   value is two spaces " ".
