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.
