NAME
       xsltproc - command line XSLT processor

SYNOPSIS
       xsltproc [[-V --version] [-v --verbose] [{-o --output} {FILE
		DIRECTORY}] --timing --repeat --debug --novalid --noout
		--maxdepth VALUE --html --param PARAMNAME PARAMVALUE
		--stringparam PARAMNAME PARAMVALUE  --nonet --path "PATH(S)"
		--load-trace --catalogs --xinclude [--profile --norman]
		--dumpextensions --nowrite --nomkdir --writesubtree PATH
		--nodtdattr] [STYLESHEET] {XML-FILE -}

DESCRIPTION
       xsltproc is a command line tool for applying XSLT stylesheets to XML
       documents. It is part of libxslt(3), the XSLT C library for GNOME.
       While it was developed as part of the GNOME project, it can operate
       independently of the GNOME desktop.

       xsltproc is invoked from the command line with the name of the
       stylesheet to be used followed by the name of the file or files to
       which the stylesheet is to be applied. It will use the standard input
       if a filename provided is -

       If a stylesheet is included in an XML document with a Stylesheet
       Processing Instruction, no stylesheet need to be named at the command
       line.  xsltproc will automatically detect the included stylesheet and
       use it.

       By default, output is to stdout. You can specify a file for output
       using the -o or --output option.

OPTIONS
       xsltproc accepts the following options (in alphabetical order):

       --catalogs
	      Use the SGML catalog specified in SGML_CATALOG_FILES to resolve
	      the location of external entities. By default, xsltproc looks
	      for the catalog specified in XML_CATALOG_FILES. If that is not
	      specified, it uses /etc/xml/catalog.

       --debug
	      Output an XML tree of the transformed document for debugging
	      purposes.

       --dumpextensions
	      Dumps the list of all registered extensions on stdout.

       --html The input document is an HTML file.

       --load-trace
	      Display all the documents loaded during the processing to
	      stderr.

       --maxdepth VALUE
	      Adjust the maximum depth of the template stack before libxslt(3)
	      concludes it is in an infinite loop. The default is 500.

       --nodtdattr
	      Do not apply default attributes from the document's DTD.

       --nomkdir
	      Refuses to create directories.

       --nonet
	      Do not use the Internet to fetch DTDs, entities or documents.

       --noout
	      Do not output the result.

       --novalid
	      Skip loading the document's DTD.

       --nowrite
	      Refuses to write to any file or resource.

       -o or --output FILE | DIRECTORY
	      Direct output to the given FILE. Using the option with a
	      DIRECTORY directs the output files to the specified directory.
	      This can be useful for multiple outputs (also known as
	      "chunking") or manpage processing.  Note: The given directory
	      must already exist.

       --param PARAMNAME PARAMVALUE
	      Pass a parameter of name PARAMNAME and value PARAMVALUE to the
	      stylesheet. You may pass multiple name/value pairs up to a
	      maximum of 32. If the value being passed is a string rather than
	      a node identifier, use --stringparam instead.

       --path "PATH(S)"
	      Use the (space- or colon-separated) list of filesystem paths
	      specified by PATHS to load DTDs, entities or documents. Enclose
	      space-separated lists by quotation marks.

       --profile or --norman
	      Output profiling information detailing the amount of time spent
	      in each part of the stylesheet. This is useful in optimizing
	      stylesheet performance.

       --repeat
	      Run the transformation 20 times. Used for timing tests.

       --stringparam PARAMNAME PARAMVALUE
	      Pass a paramenter of name PARAMNAME and value PARAMVALUE where
	      PARAMVALUE is a string rather than a node identifier.  Note: The
	      string must be UTF-8 encoded.

       --timing
	      Display the time used for parsing the stylesheet, parsing the
	      document and applying the stylesheet and saving the result.
	      Displayed in milliseconds.

       -v or --verbose
	      Output each step taken by xsltproc in processing the stylesheet
	      and the document.

       -V or --version
	      Show the version of libxml(3) and libxslt(3) used.

       --writesubtree PATH
	      Allow file write only within the PATH subtree.

       --xinclude
	      Process the input document using the Xinclude specification.
	      More details on this can be found in the Xinclude specification:
	      http://www.w3.org/TR/xinclude/

ENVIRONMENT
       SGML_CATALOG_FILES
	      to be written ...

       XML_CATALOG_FILES
	      Catalog behavior can be changed by redirecting queries to the
	      user's own set of catalogs. This can be done by setting the
	      XML_CATALOG_FILES environment variable to a list of catalogs. An
	      empty one should deactivate loading the default /etc/xml/catalog
	      default catalog.

DIAGNOSTICS
       xsltproc's return codes provide information that can be used when
       calling it from scripts.

       0      No error (normal operation)

       1      No argument

       2      Too many parameters

       3      Unknown option

       4      Failed to parse the stylesheet

       5      Error in the stylesheet

       6      Error in one of the documents

       7      Unsupported xsl:output method

       8      String parameter contains both quote and double-quotes

       9      Internal processing error

       10     Processing was stopped by a terminating message
