hxtabletrans - transpose an HTML or XHTML table
hxtabletrans [ -c ] [ -x ] [ -v ] [
hxtabletrans reads an HTML or XHTML file (or fragment), finds the first
<table> element and outputs that element with the rows and columns
transposed. I.e., rows become columns and columns become rows.
Any grouping of rows with <thead>, <tbody> or
<tfoot> is lost. Also, any comments outside the cells are lost.
The following options are supported:
hxtabletrans should check for rows that have fewer cells than the longest
row (taking into account the effect of the colspan and rowspan attributes) and
create the omitted cells, but it currently doesn't. Tables with rows of
unequal length may thus not be transposed correctly.
- Also try to transpose the contents of cells. If a cell consists only of
horizontal or vertical arrows and ellipses (apart from mark-up and
whitespace), then those arrows and ellipses are replaced by their
transposed counterparts. E.g., a right arrow becomes a down arrow.
- Use XML syntax. Empty elements are written with a slash (/) at the end,
- Print the version number and exit.
Nested tables are not transposed.
