xacobeo - Graphical interface for running XPath queries. SYNOPSIS
xacobeo [OPTION]... [file [xpath]] Options: -h, --help brief help message -v, --version display the version of Xacobeo, XML::LibXML and libxml2 that are used and exit --html parse the input file as an HTML document Where file is a XML document and xpath a XPath query. OPTIONS
--help Print a brief help message and exits. --html Parse the file in the command line using the HTML parser. DESCRIPTION
This program provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for executing XPath queries and seeing their results. The GUI tries to provide all the elements that are needed in order to write, test and execute XPath queries without too many troubles. It displays the Document Object Model (DOM) and the namespaces used. The program registers the namespaces automatically and each element is displayed with its associated namespaces. All is performed with the idea of being able of running an XPath query as soon as possible without having to fight with the document's namespaces and by seeing automatically under which namespace each element is. This program is not an XML editor, at least not at this point, it's meant to be used for constructing and executing XPath queries. RATIONALE
The main idea behind this application is to provide a simple way for building XPath queries that will be latter integrated in to a program or XSLT transformation paths. Therefore, this program goal is to load an XML document and to display it as an XML parser sees it. Thus each node element is prefixed with its namespace. IMPLEMENTATION
This program uses XML::LibXML (libxml2) for all XML manipulations and Gtk2 for the graphical interface. LIMITATIONS
For the moment, the program focuses only on XPath and doesn't allow the XML document to be edited. AUTHOR

xpath - a script to query XPath statements in XML documents. SYNOPSIS
xpath [-s suffix] [-p prefix] [-q] -e query [-e query] ... [file] ... DESCRIPTION
xpath uses the XML::XPath perl module to make XPath queries to any XML document. The XML::XPath module aims to comply exactly to the XPath specification at "" and yet allows extensions to be added in the form of functions. The script takes any number of XPath pointers and tries to apply them to each XML document given on the command line. If no file arguments are given, the query is done using "STDIN" as an XML document. When multiple queries exist, the result of the last query is used as context for the next query and only the result of the last one is output. The context of the first query is always the root of the current document. OPTIONS
-q Be quiet. Output only errors (and no separator) on stderr. -s suffix Place "suffix" at the end of each entry. Default is a linefeed. -p prefix Place "prefix" preceding each entry. Default is nothing. BUGS
