NAME

xmlpretty - XML pretty printer

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  xmlpretty [--options] [filename]



DESCRIPTION

<B>xmlprettyB> is the commandline interface to XML::Handler::YAWriter, acting as a tool to add and remove pretty printing to XML files.

<B>xmlprettyB> has several methods to add human readablitiy.

If you want to add readablity without adding so-called ignorable whitespace, use it in the following way :



  $ xmlpretty --AddHiddenNewline \
              --AddHiddenAttrTab \
          --CatchEmptyElement \
          uglyfile.xml > prettyfile.xml



If you do <B>notB> want to process the file further, but only want it human readable, add visible whitespace to the file as follows :



  $ xmlpretty --PrettyWhiteNewline \
              --PrettyWhiteIndent \
          --CatchEmptyElement \
          uglyfile.xml > prettyfile.xml



You may use YAWriter to clean whitespace from XML documents. This may work in 99% of the cases where you want to get rid of ignorable whitespace caused by the various forms of pretty printing.



  $ xmlpretty --NoWhiteSpace \
              --NoComments \
              --AddHiddenNewline \
          --AddHiddenAttrTab \
          --CatchEmptyElement \
          prettyfile.xml > cleanfile.xml



    Options

Options are given in a gnu like --option idiom.
AddHiddenNewline boolean Add hidden newline before >
AddHiddenAttrTab boolean Add hidden tabulation for attributes
CatchEmptyElement boolean Catch empty Elements, apply /> compression
CatchWhiteSpace boolean Catch whitespace with comments
IsSGML boolean This option will cause start_document, processing_instruction and doctype_decl to appear as SGML. The SGML is still well-formed of course, if your SAX events are well-formed.
NoComments boolean Supress Comments
NoDTD boolean Supress DTD
NoPI boolean Supress Processing Instructions
NoProlog boolean Supress <?xml ... ?> Prolog
NoWhiteSpace boolean Supress WhiteSpace to clean documents from prior pretty printing.
PrettyWhiteIndent boolean Add visible indent before any eventstring
PrettyWhiteNewline boolean Add visible newlines before any eventstring
SAX1 boolean (not yet implemented) Output only SAX1 compilant eventstrings

    Bugs:

Automatic recoding between 8bit and 16bit does not yet work correctly !

I have Perl-5.6 at home and here I can specify use utf8; in the right places to make recoding work. But I dislike saying use 5.00555; because many systems run 5.00503.
