Wrench Shell script to add root element and remove to make it good

Hi All,

I have a situation to parse a file with following limitations:

2) The XML is not proper as it has no fix root tag rather have multiple XML in a single XML. or you can say multiple root elements.

This file will be huge in size. So before i think of some good solution to parse it, i am looking for manipulate the xml by adding root element and deleting repeated below tags as it's a combination of XMLs.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<!DOCTYPE example [<!ENTITY copy "&#xA9;">]>

So do anyone know how can i do this in shell script.

I am also thinking of splitting this before parsing using Java.

If anyone had this situation before, let me know.

Thanks for help..

Well, if the XML is very well behaved text, you can use text tools like sed or awk to adjust it.
