SYNOPSIShxremove [ -i ] [ -l language ] selector
DESCRIPTIONhxremove reads a well-formed XML document from standard input and writes it to standard output without any elements that match the CSS selector that is given as argument. For example
hxremove ol li:first-child
removes the first li (list item in XHTML) from every ol (ordered list).
Assumes that class selectors (".foo") refer to an attribute called "class". And assumes that ID selectors ("#foo") refer to an attribute called "id".
To handle HTML files, make them well-formed XML first, e.g., with hxnormalize -x.
Compare with hxselect, which removes everything but the selected elements.
OPTIONSThe following options are supported:
- Match case-insensitively. Useful for HTML and some other SGML-based languages.
- -l language
- Sets the default language, in case the root element doesn't have an xml:lang attribute (default: none). Example: -l en
- Show command usage.
OPERANDSThe following operand is supported:
- A selector. Most selectors from CSS level 3 are supported, with the exception of pseudo-classes, pseudo-elements and selectors with last- in their name.
