ospent(1) Concatenates entities in an SGML/XML document


ospent [-ChnrRv] [-bbctf] [-csysid] [-ffile] [-Ddirectory] [sysid...]


ospent (OpenSP print entity) prints the concatenation of the entities with system identifiers

on the standard output.

The following options are available:

-bbctf, --bctf=bctf

Use the BCTF with name bctf for output.

-csysid, --catalog=sysid

Map public identifiers and entity names to system identifiers using the catalog entry file whose system identifier is sysid.

-C, --catalogs

This has the same effect as in onsgmls(1).

-Ddirectory, --directory=directory

Search directory for files specified in system identifiers. This has the same effect as in onsgmls(1).

-ffile, --error-file=file

Redirect error messages to file.

-h, --help

Display a help text and exit.

-n, --non-sgml

The entity is a non-SGML data entity. This option forces the octets in the storage objects comprising the entity to be copied exactly without any of the conversions that are done for text entities. Implies -r.

-r, --raw

Raw output. Don't perform any conversion on RSs and REs when printing the entity. The entity would typically have the storage manager attribute records=asis.

-R, --restricted

This has the same effect as in onsgmls(1).

-v, --version

Print the version number.
