       onsgmls  - An SGML System Conforming to International Standard ISO 8879
       -- Standard Generalized Markup Language. An  SGML  Extended  Facilities
       system  conforming  to  Annex  A  of Internal Standard ISO/IEC 10744 --
       Hypermedia/Time-based Structuring Language


       onsgmls [-BCdeghlnpRrsuvx] [-alinktype] [-Aarchitecture]
               [-bbctf] [-csysid...] [-Ddirectory]
               [-Emax_errors] [-ffile] [-iname]
               [-ooutput_option...] [-tfile] [-wwarning_type...]


       onsgmls parses and validates the SGML document whose document entity is
       specified  by the system identifiers [sysid...] and prints on the stan-
       dard output a simple  text  representation  of  its  Element  Structure
       Information  Set.  (This  is the information set which a structure-con-
       trolled conforming SGML application should act upon.) If more than  one
       system identifier is specified, then the corresponding entities will be
       concatenated to form the document entity. Thus the document entity  may
       be  spread among several files; for example, the SGML declaration, pro-
       log and document instance set could each be in a separate file.  If  no
       system  identifiers  are specified, then onsgmls will read the document
       entity from the standard input. A command line system identifier  of  -
       can be used to refer to the standard input. (Normally in a system iden-
       tifier, <OSFD>0 is used to refer to standard input.)

       The following options are available:

       -alinktype, --activate=linktype
              Make link type linktype active. Not all ESIS information is out-
              put  in  this case: the active LPDs are not explicitly reported,
              although each link attribute is qualified  with  its  link  type
              name;  there is no information about result elements; when there
              are multiple link rules applicable to the current element,  ons-
              gmls always chooses the first.

       -Aarchitecture, --architecture=architecture
              Parse with respect to architecture architecture.

       -bbctf, --bctf=bctf, -bencoding, --encoding=encoding
              This  determines the encoding used for output. If in fixed char-
              acter set mode it specifies the name of an encoding; if not,  it
              specifies the name of a BCTF.

       -B, --batch_mode
              Batch  mode. Parse each [sysid...] specified on the command line
              separately, rather  than  concatenating  them.  This  is  useful
              mainly with -s.

              If  -tfilename  is  also  specified, then the specified filename
              will be prefixed to the sysid to make the filename for the  RAST
              result for each sysid.

       -csysid, --catalog=sysid
              Map  public  identifiers  and entity names to system identifiers
              using the catalog entry file whose system identifier  is  sysid.
              Multiple  -c  options  are  allowed. If there is a catalog entry
              file called catalog in the same place as the document entity, it
              will be searched for immediately after those specified by -c.

       -C, --catalogs
              The  [filename...]  arguments  specify catalog files rather than
              the document entity. The document entity  is  specified  by  the
              first DOCUMENT entry in the catalog files.

       -Ddirectory, --directory=directory
              Search directory for files specified in system identifiers. Mul-
              tiple -D options are allowed. See the description of the  osfile
              storage manager for more information about file searching.

       -e, --open-entities
              Describe  open entities in error messages. Error messages always
              include the  position  of  the  most  recently  opened  external

       -Emax_errors, --max-errors=max_errors
              onsgmls  will  exit after max_errors errors. If max_errors is 0,
              there is no limit on the number of errors. The default is 200.

       -ffile, --error-file=file
              Redirect errors to file. This is useful mainly with shells  that
              do not support redirection of stderr.

       -g, --open-elements
              Show the generic identifiers of open elements in error messages.

       -h, --help
              Show a help message and exit.

       -iname, --include=name
              Pretend that

              <!ENTITY % name "INCLUDE">

              occurs at the start of the document type declaration  subset  in
              the  SGML  document  entity.  Since  repeated  definitions of an
              entity are ignored, this definition will  take  precedence  over
              any other definitions of this entity in the document type decla-
              ration. Multiple -i options are allowed. If the SGML declaration
              replaces  the  reserved  name INCLUDE then the new reserved name
              will be the replacement text of the entity. Typically the  docu-
              ment type declaration will contain

              <!ENTITY % name "IGNORE">

              and  will  use  %name;  in the status keyword specification of a
              marked section declaration. In  this  case  the  effect  of  the
              option will be to cause the marked section not to be ignored.

       -n, --error-numbers
              Show message numbers in error messages.

       -ooutput_option, --option=output_option
              Output additional information according to output_option:

              entity  Output  definitions of all general entities not just for
              data or subdoc entities that  are  referenced  or  named  in  an
              ENTITY or ENTITIES attribute.

              id Distinguish attributes whose declared value is ID.

              line  Output L commands giving the current line number and file-

              included Output an i command for included sub-elements.

              empty Output an e command for elements which are not allowed  to
              have  an end-tag, that is those with a declared content of empty
              or with a content reference attribute.

              notation-sysid Output an f command before an  N  command,  if  a
              system identifier could be generated for that notation.

              nonsgml  In fixed character set mode, output \% escape sequences
              for non-SGML  data  characters.  Non-SGML  data  characters  can
              result from numeric character references.

              data-attribute  Output the notation name and attributes for DATA
              attributes. Otherwise, DATA attributes are  treated  like  CDATA
              attributes.  For more details see clause 4.4.3 of Annex K of ISO

              comment Output an _ command with the contents of a comment. Mul-
              tiple  comments  in  a single comment declaration will result in
              multiple distinct _ commands, just as if the comments were  each
              in a separate comment declaration.

              omitted  Output  an o command before a command which was implied
              by the input document, but omitted from the actual markup.  This
              currently affects (,), and A commands.

              tagomit As omitted, but only for ( and ) commands.

              attromit As omitted, but only for A commands.

              Multiple -o options are allowed.

       -p, --only-prolog
              Parse only the prolog. onsgmls will exit after parsing the docu-
              ment type declaration. Implies -s.

       -R, --restricted
              Restrict file reading. This option is intended for use with ons-
              gmls-based  Web  tools  (e.g. CGI scripts) to prevent reading of
              arbitrary files on the Web server.  With  this  option  enabled,
              onsgmls will not read any local files unless they are located in
              a directory (or subdirectory) specified  by  the  -D  option  or
              included in the SGML_SEARCH_PATH environment variable. As a fur-
              ther security precaution, this option limits filesnames  to  the
              characters  A-Z, a-z, 0-9, ’?’, ’.’, ’_’, ’-’ and does not allow
              filenames containing "..".

       -s, --no-output
              Suppress output. Error messages will still be printed.

       -tfile, --rast-file=file
              Output to file the RAST result as defined by ISO/IEC  13673:1995
              (actually this isn’t quite an IS yet; this implements the Inter-
              mediate Editor’s Draft of 1994/08/29, with changes to  implement
              ISO/IEC JTC1/SC18/WG8 N1777). The normal output is not produced.

       -v, --version
              Print the version number.

       -wtype, --warning=type
              Control warnings and errors. Multiple -w  options  are  allowed.
              The following values of type enable warnings:

              xml Warn about constructs that are not allowed by XML.

              mixed  Warn about mixed content models that do not allow #PCDATA

              sgmldecl Warn about various dubious constructions  in  the  SGML

              should  Warn about various recommendations made in ISO 8879 that
              the  document  does  not  comply  with.   (Recommendations   are
              expressed with "should", as distinct from requirements which are
              usually expressed with "shall".)

              default Warn about defaulted references.

              duplicate Warn about duplicate entity declarations.

              undefined Warn about undefined elements: elements  used  in  the
              DTD but not defined.

              unclosed Warn about unclosed start and end-tags.

              empty Warn about empty start and end-tags.

              net Warn about net-enabling start-tags and null end-tags.

              min-tag  Warn  about minimized start and end-tags. Equivalent to
              combination of unclosed, empty and net warnings.

              unused-map Warn about unused short reference maps: maps that are
              declared  with  a  short reference mapping declaration but never
              used in a short reference use declaration in the DTD.

              unused-param Warn about parameter entities that are defined  but
              not used in a DTD. Unused internal parameter entities whose text
              is INCLUDE or IGNORE won’t get the warning.

              notation-sysid Warn about notations for which no system  identi-
              fier could be generated.

              all Warn about conditions that should usually be avoided (in the
              opinion of the author). Equivalent to: mixed,  should,  default,
              undefined,   sgmldecl,   unused-map,   unused-param,  empty  and

              immediate-recursion Warn about immediately  recursive  elements.
              For more detais see clause 2.2.5 of Annex K of ISO 8879.

              fully-declared  Warn  if the document instance fails to be fully
              declared. This has the effect of changing the  SGML  declaration
              For more details see clause 2.2.1 of Annex K of ISO 8879.

              fully-tagged Warn if the document instance fails  to  be  fully-
              tagged.  This has the effect of changing the SGML declaration to
              NO  and SHORTTAG ATTRIB OMITNAME NO. For more details see clause
              2.2.2 of Annex K of ISO 8879.

              amply-tagged,  amply-tagged-recursive  Warn  if   the   doucment
              instance  fails  to be amply-tagged. Implicitly defined elements
              may be immediately recurisve if amply-tagged-recursive is speci-
              fied.  This  has  the effect of changing the SGML declaration to
              YES. For more details see clause 2.2.4 of Annex K of ISO 8879.

              type-valid Warn if the document instance fails to be type-valid.
              This  has the effect of changing the SGML declaration to specify
              VALIDITY YES. For more details see clause 2.2.3 of  Annex  K  of
              ISO 8879.

              entity-ref  Warn  about  references  to non-predefined entities.
              This has the effect of changing the SGML declaration to  specify
              ENTITIES  REF NONE. For more details see clause 2.3.2 of Annex K
              of ISO 8879.

              external-entity-ref Warn about references to external  entities.
              This includes references to an external DTD subset. This has the
              effect of changing the SGML declaration to specify ENTITIES  REF
              INTERNAL.  For  more  details see clause 2.3.3 of Annex K of ISO

              integral Warn if the document instance is not integrally stored.
              This  has the effect of changing the SGML declaration to specify
              ENTITIES INTEGRAL YES. For more  details  see  clause  2.3.1  of
              Annex K of ISO 8879.

              A  warning  can be disabled by using its name prefixed with no-.
              Thus -wall -wno-duplicate will enable all warnings except  those
              about duplicate entity declarations.

              The following values for warning_type disable errors:

              no-idref Do not give an error for an ID reference value which no
              element has as its ID. The effect will be as if  each  attribute
              declared as an ID reference value had been declared as a name.

              no-significant Do not give an error when a character that is not
              a significant character in the reference concrete syntax  occurs
              in a literal in the SGML declaration. This may be useful in con-
              junction with certain buggy test suites.

              no-valid Do not require the document to be type-valid. This  has
              the  effect of changing the SGML declaration to specify VALIDITY
              NOASSERT and IMPLYDEF ATTLIST YES  ELEMENT  YES.  An  option  of
              -wvalid has the effect of changing the SGML declaration to spec-
              ify VALIDITY TYPE and IMPLYDEF ATTLIST NO ELEMENT NO. If neither
              -wvalid  nor  -wno-valid  are  specified,  then the VALIDITY and
              IMPLYDEF specified in the SGML declaration will be used.

              no-afdr Do not give errors when AFDR meta-DTD notation  features
              are  used  in  the  DTD. These errors are normally produced when
              parsing the DTD, but suppressed when parsing meta-DTDs.

       -x, --references
              Show information about relevant clauses (from ISO 8879:1986)  in
              error messages.

       The  following  options  are  also supported for backward compatibility
       with sgmls:

       -d     Same as -wduplicate.

       -l     Same as -oline.

              Same as -c.

       -r     Same as -wdefault.

       -u     Same as -wundef.
