OSGMLNORM(1)                       Reference                      OSGMLNORM(1)

       osgmlnorm - An SGML/XML document normalizer

       osgmlnorm [-CdeghmnrRvx] [-alinktype] [-Aarchitecture] [-bbctf]
                 [-ccatalog] [-Ddirectory...] [-Emax_errors...] [-iname...]
                 [-fname...] [-wwarning...] [sysid...]

       osgmlnorm prints on the standard output a normalized document instance
       for the SGML document contained in the concatenation of the entities
       with system identifiers

       When the normalized instance is prefixed with the original SGML
       declaration and prolog, it will have the same ESIS as the original SGML
       document, with the following exceptions:

       * The output of osgmlnorm does not protect against the recognition of
       short reference delimiters, so any USEMAP declarations must be removed
       from the DTD.

       * The normalized instance will use the reference delimiters, even if
       the original instance did not.

       * If marked sections are included in the output using the -m option,
       the reference reserved names will be used for the status keywords even
       if the original instance did not.

       * Any ESIS information relating to the SGML LINK feature will be lost.

       The normalized instance will not use any markup minimization features
       except that:

       * Any attributes that were not specified in the original instance will
       not be included in the normalized instance. (Current attributes will be

       * If the declared value of an attribute was a name token group, and a
       value was specified that was the same as the name of the attribute,
       then the attribute name and value indicator will be omitted. For
       example, with HTML osgmlnorm would output <DL COMPACT> rather than <DL

       Part of an SGML System Conforming to International Standard ISO 8879 --
       Standard Generalized Markup Language. An SGML Extended Facilities
       system conforming to Annex A of International Standard ISO/IEC 10744 --
       Hypermedia/Time-based Structuring Language.

       The following options are available:

       -aname, --activate=name
           Make doctype or linktype name active.

       -Aarchitecture, --architecture=architecture
           Parse with respect to architecture architecture.

       -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).

       -d, --dtd
           Output a document type declaration with the same external
           identifier as the input document, and with no internal declaration
           subset. No check is performed that the document instance is valid
           with respect to this DTD.

       -Ddirectory, --directory=directory
           Search directory for files specified in system identifiers.

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

       -e, --open-entities
           Describe open entities in error messages.

           Show error numbers in error messages.

       -h, --help
           Display a help text and exit.

       -iname, --include=name
           This has the same effect as in onsgmls(1).

       -m, --marked-sections
           Output any marked sections that were in the input document

       -n, --comments
           Output any comments that were in the input document instance.

       -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.

           Control warnings and errors according to type. This has the same
           effect as in onsgmls(1).

       onsgmls(1), ospam(1), ospent(1), osx(1)
