OSX(1)                                osx                               OSX(1)


       osx  -  An SGML System Conforming to International Standard ISO 8879 --
       Standard Generalized Markup Language


       osx [-Cehilprvx] [-bencoding] [-ccatalog_file] [-Ddirectory] [-ffile] [-wwarning_type] [-xxml_output_option...] [sysid...]


       osx converts SGML to XML. osx parses and validates  the  SGML  document
       contained  in  sysid and writes an equivalent XML document to the stan-
       dard output. osx will warn about SGML  constructs  which  have  no  XML


       The following options are available:


              Use encoding for output. By default osx uses UTF-8.


              Use the catalog entry file file.

          -C   This has the same effect as in onsgmls(1).


              Search directory for files specified in system identifiers. This
              has the same effect as in onsgmls(1).

          -e   Describe open entities in error messages.


              Redirect errors to file. This is useful mainly with shells  that
              do not support redirection of stderr.


              This has the same effect as in onsgmls(1).

          -v   Print the version number.


              Control warnings and errors according to type. This has the same
              effect as in onsgmls(1).


              Control the XML  output  according  to  the  value  of  xml_out-
              put_option as follows:

              no-nl-in-tag  Don't  use newlines inside start-tags. Usually osx
              uses newlines inside start-tags so as to reduce the  probability
              of excessively long lines.

              id Output attribute declarations for ID attributes.

              notation Output declarations for notations.

              ndata  Output  declarations  for  external  data  entities.  XML
              requires these to be NDATA. osx will warn about CDATA and  SDATA
              external data entities and output them as NDATA entities.

              cdata  Use  XML CDATA sections for CDATA marked sections and for
              elements with a declared content of CDATA.

              comment Output comment declarations. Comment declarations in the
              DTD will not be output.

              lower Prefer lower case. Names that were subjected to upper-case
              substitution by SGML will be folded to lower case. This does not
              include  reserved names; XML requires these to be in upper-case.

              pi-escape Escape &<> in the contents of processing  instructions
              using  the  amp,  lt  and  gt  entities.  This allows processing
              instructions to contain the string >?, but requires that  appli-
              cations handle the escapes.

              empty Use the <e/> syntax for element types e declared as EMPTY.

              attlis Output an ATTLIST declaration for every element  specify-
              ing  the  type  of  all  attributes.  The default will always be

              Multiple -x options are allowed.
