docmake is a tool to render DocBook/XML into its resultant formats using XSLT: XHTML, XSL-FO, PDF, RTF, etc. For a brief help type
docmake help .
It aims to be a replacement for xmlto - http://cyberelk.net/tim/software/xmlto/ . As opposed to xmlto, it is written in Perl, which is easier to get right than xmlto's Bash, and xmlto hasn't been updated for a long time when I started work on docmake.
The basic invocation of docmake is:
docmake [flags] MODE input.xml
The available modes are:
To get help.
Convert to XSL-FO.
Convert to Word/RTF.
Convert to XHTML.
Convert to PDF.
The available flags are:
-h ; --help
Display some rudimentary help.
Display the man page.
-v ; --verbose
Verbose - output the commands' invocation as they are executed.
Put the result in OUTPUT_PATH .
-x STYLESHEET ; --stylesheet STYLESHEET
Use the XSLT stylesheet STYLESHEET for performing XSLT transformations.
This is the base path for the DocBook stylesheets. The appropriate XSLT mode will be appended to it. This is for example, useful for building DocBook 5 documents by specifying the path to their stylesheets.
Specify the string parameter of KEY as VALUE. Note that as opposed to xsltproc, KEY and VALUE cannot be specified as different command line arguments, but rather should be on the same one, delimited by an equal sign ("
Disable adding a trailing slash when building into an HTML file, to emit an unneeded file there. Note the
Behave like make in building files only if their dependencies are newer.
There are some examples for sample invocation in the Synopsis.
