NAME

dtdflatten - Flatten an SGML/XML DTD.

SYNOPSIS

  dtdflatten [options]

DESCRIPTION

dtdflatten parses a DTD and prints out a flatten/expanded version of it with all parameter entities expanded.
The first non-option-related argument provided on the command-line specifies the file to parse. If no filename is given, then the DTD is read from standard input.
The flatten DTD is printed to standard output unless the "--output" option is specified.

OPTIONS

--catalog <catalog>
Specify catalog files to parse for resolving external entity references. This option can be specified multiple times.
 
NOTE: Currently, only SGML Open Catalog format is supported. XML Catalog support is not implemented (yet).
--debug
Extra debugging output. This option can be specified multiple times to increase the amount of output.
 
Debugging output is sent to standard error.
--declaration <file>
Specify the SGML declaration. The SGML declaration is parsed to determine the type of DTD being parsed, XML or SGML. The key parts of the SGML declaration examined are the NAMECASE and CHARSET directives to determine the DTD type.
 
If no SGML declaration is available, the "--xml", "--namecase-general", and "--namecase-entity" options can be used.
--output <file>
Output file. If not specified, standard output is used.
--preserve <entity-name>
Preserve parameter entity declaration denoted by <entity-name>. This option can be specified multiple times.
 
Note, if <entity-name> matches any portion of a parameter entity, the parameter entity declaration will be preserved.
--verbose
--noverbose
Print parsing progress. By default, this option is enabled. Verbose output is sent to standard error.
 
If "--debug" is specified, then this option is automatically enabled.
--version
Print version and synopsis.
--help
Print synopsis and options available.
--man
Print manual page.
