NAME
hxunent - replace HTML predefined character entities by UTF-8 SYNOPSIS
hxunent [ -b ] [ -f ] [ file ] DESCRIPTION
The hxunent command reads the file (or standard input) and copies it to standard output with &-entities by their equivalent character (encoded as UTF-8). E.g., &quot; is replaced by " and &lt; is replaced by <. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -b The five builtin entities of XML (&lt; &gt; &quot; &apos; &amp;) are not replaced but copied unchanged. This is necessary if the output has to be valid XML or SGML. -f This option changes how unknown entities or lone ampersands are handled. Normally they are copied unchanged, but this option tries to "fix" them by replacing ampersands by &amp;. Often such stray ampersands are the result of copy and paste of URLs into a document and then this option indeed fixes them and makes the document valid. DIAGNOSTICS
The program's exit value is 0 if all went well, otherwise: 1 The input couldn't be read (file not found, file not readable...) 2 Wrong command line arguments. SEE ALSO
asc2xml(1), xml2asc(1), UTF-8 (RFC 2279) BUGS
The program assumes entities are as defined by HTML. It doesn't read a document's DTD to find the actual definitions in use in a document. With -f, it will even remove all entities that are not HTML entities. 6.x 10 Jul 2011 HXUNENT(1)
