xmllint - command line XML tool
xmllint [--version | --debug | --shell | --debugent | --copy | --recover | --noent | --noout | --htmlout | --nowrap | --valid | --postvalid | --dtdvalid URL | --timing | --repeat | --insert | --compress | --sgml | --html | --push | --memory | --nowarning | --noblanks | --for- mat | --testIO | --encode encoding | --catalogs | --nocatalogs | --auto | --xinclude | --loaddtd | --dtdattr | --dropdtd] [xmlfile]
The xmllint program parses one or more XML files, specified on the command line as xmlfile. 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. It is included in libxml2.
--version Display the version of libxml2 used. --debug Parse a file and output an annotated tree of the in-memory version of the document. --shell Run a navigating shell. --debugent Debug the entities defined in the document. --copy Test the internal copy implementation. --recover Output any parsable portions of an invalid document. --noent Substitute entity values for entity references. By default, xmllint leaves entity references in place. --noout Suppress output. By default, xmllint outputs the result tree. --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 in a browser. --nowrap Do not output HTML doc wrapper. --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. --postvalid Validate after parsing is completed. --dtdvalid URL Use the DTD specified by URL for validation. --timing Output information about the time it takes xmllint to perform the various steps. --repeat Repeat 100 times, for timing or profiling. --insert Test for valid insertions. --compress Turn on gzip compression of output. --sgml Use the DocBook SGML parser. This allows documents written in SGML DocBook to be converted into an in-memory tree and treated as if they were written in XML. --html Use the HTML parser. --push Use the push mode of the parser. --memory Parse from memory. --nowarning Do not emit warnings from the parser and/or validator. --noblanks Drop ignorable blank spaces. --format Reformat and reindent the output. --testIO Test user input/output support. --encode encoding Output in the given encoding. --catalogs Use the catalogs from $SGML_CATALOG_FILES. Otherwise /etc/xml/catalog is used by default. --nocatalogs Do not use any catalogs. --auto Generate a small document for testing purposes. --xinclude Do XInclude processing. --loaddtd Fetch external DTD. --dtdattr Fetch external DTD and populate the tree with inherited attributes. --dropdtd Remove DTD from output.
