--cache file

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.


Create a ht://dig compatible index

-o, --output file

Output whole document to file.


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.


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.
