SYNOPSIS

meinproc4 [--help] [Generic-options] [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [--cache  file] [--check] [--htdig] [--srcdir] [--param  key= value] [[[-o] | [--output]] file] [--stdout] [--stylesheet  xsl] docbook_file

DESCRIPTION

meinproc4 converts DocBook files to HTML.

GENERIC OPTIONS

--author
Show author information.
--help
Show help about options.
--help-all
Show all options.
--help-kde
Show KDE specific options.
--help-qt
Show Qt specific options.
--license
Show license information.
-v--version
Show version information

APPLICATION OPTIONS

--cache file
Create a cache file for the document
--check
Check the document for validity
 
The output can be a bit daunting, since one small mistake can cause a cascade of errors. 
The trick is to look at the first error, fix that error, save the file, and run  meinproc4 again.
--htdig
Create a ht://dig compatible index
-o, --output file
Output whole document to file.
--stdout
Output whole document to stdout.
--stylesheet xsl
Stylesheet to use
--srcdir dir
Set the root directory to look for kdelibs
--param key=value
Set parameters to pass to the stylesheet.

USAGE

The most common way to run meinproc4 is simply as
 
meinproc4 docbook-file

 
where docbook-file is usually index.docbook. This command creates HTML pages from the DocBook file. Note that these pages are only viewable in KDE-based browsers (like Konqueror).
If you need to view the HTML output in another browser (for example, if you're placing it on line), use
 
meinproc4 --stylesheet stylesheet-name docbook-file

 
where stylesheet-name is the full path to one of the XSL stylesheets in $KDEDIR/share/apps/ksgmltools/customization. To produce output suitable for the web, you can use kde-web.xsl or kde-chunk-online.xsl. See the README file in that directory for more details.
