       dblatex [options] {file | -}

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page briefly documents the dblatex command. For more
       details read the PDF manual; see below.

       dblatex is a program that transforms your SGML/XML DocBook documents to
       DVI, PostScript or PDF by translating them into pure LaTeX as a first
       process.  MathML 2.0 markups are supported, too.  It started as a clone
       of DB2LaTeX.

OPTIONS
       A summary of options is included below.  For a complete description,
       see the PDF manual.

       -h, --help
           Show a help message and exit.

       -b backend, --backend=backend
           Backend driver to use: pdftex (default), dvips, or xetex.

       -B, --no-batch
           All the tex output is printed.

       -c config, -S config, --config=config
           Configuration file. A configuration file can be used to group all
           the options and customizations to apply.

       -d, --debug
           Debug mode: Keep the temporary directory in which dblatex actually
           works.

       -D, --dump
           Dump the error stack when an error occurs (debug purpose).

       -e indexstyle, --indexstyle indexstyle
           Index style file to pass to makeindex instead of the dblatex
           default index style.

       -f figure_format, --fig-format=figure_format
           Input figure format: fig, eps. Used when not deduced from figure
           file extension.

       -F input_format, --input-format=input_format
           Input file format: sgml, xml (default).

       -i texinputs, --texinputs texinputs
           Path added to TEXINPUTS

       -I figure_path, --fig-path=figure_path
           Additional lookup path of the figures.

       -l bst_path, --bst-path=bst_path
           Additional lookup path of the BibTeX styles.
           applied instead.

       -O output_dir, --output-dir=output_dir
           Output directory of the books built from a set. When not specified,
           the current working directory is used instead. The option is
           ignored if a single document is outputed, and the -o is taken into
           account.

       -p xsl_user, --xsl-user=xsl_user
           An XSL user stylesheet to use. Several user stylesheets can be
           specified, but the option order is meaningful: a user stylesheet
           takes precedence over previously defined user stylesheets.

       -P param=value, --param=param=value
           Set an XSL parameter from command line.

       -q, --quiet
           Less verbose, showing only TeX output messages and error messages.

       -r script, --texpost=script
           Script called at the very end of the tex compilation. Its role is
           to modify the tex file or one of the compilation files before the
           last round.

       -s latex_style, --texstyle=latex_style
           Latex style to apply. It can be a package name, or directly a latex
           package path. A package name must be without a directory path and
           without the '.sty' extension. On the contrary, a full latex package
           path can contain a directory path, but must ends with the '.sty'
           extension.

       -t format, --type=format
           Output format. Available formats: tex, dvi, ps, pdf (default).

       --dvi
           DVI output. Equivalent to -tdvi.

       --pdf
           PDF output. Equivalent to -tpdf.

       --ps
           PostScript output. Equivalent to -tps.

       -T style, --style=style
           Output style, predefined are: db2latex, simple, native (default).

       -v, --version
           Display the dblatex version.

       -V, --verbose
           Verbose mode, showing the running commands

       -x xslt_options, --xslt-opts=xslt_options
           Arguments directly passed to the XSLT engine

       /etc/dblatex/
           System-wide configuration directory.

       The predefined output styles are located in the installed package
       directory.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       DBLATEX_CONFIG_FILES
           Extra configuration directories that may contain some dblatex
           configuration files.

EXAMPLES
       To produce myfile.pdf from myfile.xml:

           dblatex myfile.xml

       To set some XSL parameters from the command line:

           dblatex -P latex.babel.language=de myfile.xml

       To use the db2latex output style:

           dblatex -T db2latex myfile.xml

       To apply your own latex style:

           dblatex -s mystyle myfile.xml
           dblatex -s /path/to/mystyle.sty myfile.xml

       To pass extra arguments to the XSLT engine:

           dblatex -x "--path /path/to/load/entity" myfile.xml

       To use dblatex and profiling:

           xsltproc --param profile.attribute "'output'" \
                    --param profile.value "'pdf'" \
                    /path/to/profiling/profile.xsl \
                    myfile.xml | dblatex -o myfile.pdf -

       To build a set of books:

           dblatex -O /path/to/chunk/dir -Pset.book.num=all myfile.xml
