DESCRIPTION
       xsltproc is a command line tool for applying XSLT stylesheets to XML
       documents. It is part of libxslt(3), the XSLT C library for GNOME.
       While it was developed as part of the GNOME project, it can operate
       independently of the GNOME desktop.

       xsltproc is invoked from the command line with the name of the
       stylesheet to be used followed by the name of the file or files to
       which the stylesheet is to be applied. It will use the standard input
       if a filename provided is -

       If a stylesheet is included in an XML document with a Stylesheet
       Processing Instruction, no stylesheet need to be named at the command
       line.  xsltproc will automatically detect the included stylesheet and
       use it.

       By default, output is to stdout. You can specify a file for output
       using the -o or --output option.

OPTIONS
       xsltproc accepts the following options (in alphabetical order):

       --catalogs
           Use the SGML catalog specified in SGML_CATALOG_FILES to resolve the
           location of external entities. By default, xsltproc looks for the
           catalog specified in XML_CATALOG_FILES. If that is not specified,
           it uses /etc/xml/catalog.

       --debug
           Output an XML tree of the transformed document for debugging
           purposes.

       --dumpextensions
           Dumps the list of all registered extensions on stdout.

       --html
           The input document is an HTML file.

       --load-trace
           Display all the documents loaded during the processing to stderr.

       --maxdepth VALUE
       --noout
           Do not output the result.

       --novalid
           Skip loading the document's DTD.

       --nowrite
           Refuses to write to any file or resource.

       -o or --output FILE | DIRECTORY
           Direct output to the given FILE. Using the option with a DIRECTORY
           directs the output files to the specified directory. This can be
           useful for multiple outputs (also known as "chunking") or manpage
           processing.

           Important
           The given directory must already exist.

           Note
           Make sure that FILE and DIRECTORY follow the "URI reference
           computation" as described in RFC 2396 and laters. This means, that
           e.g.  -o directory will maybe not work, but -o directory/ will.

           Also note that if there is no output to xsltproc, FILE will not be
           created at all. An empty file will not be created.

       --encoding ENCODING
           Allow to specify the encoding for the input.

       --param PARAMNAME PARAMVALUE
           Pass a parameter of name PARAMNAME and value PARAMVALUE to the
           stylesheet. You may pass multiple name/value pairs up to a maximum
           of 32. If the value being passed is a string, you can use
           --stringparam instead, to avoid additional quote characters that
           appear in string expressions. Note: the XPath expression must be
           UTF-8 encoded.

       --path "PATH(S)"
           Use the (space- or colon-separated) list of filesystem paths
           specified by PATHS to load DTDs, entities or documents. Enclose
           space-separated lists by quotation marks.

       --profile or --norman
           Output profiling information detailing the amount of time spent in
           each part of the stylesheet. This is useful in optimizing
           stylesheet performance.

       --repeat
           Run the transformation 20 times. Used for timing tests.

       --stringparam PARAMNAME PARAMVALUE
           Pass a parameter of name PARAMNAME and value PARAMVALUE where
           PARAMVALUE is a string rather than a node identifier.  Note: The
           string must be UTF-8 encoded.

       --writesubtree PATH
           Allow file write only within the PATH subtree.

       --xinclude
           Process the input document using the XInclude specification. More
           details on this can be found in the XInclude specification:
           http://www.w3.org/TR/xinclude/

ENVIRONMENT
       SGML_CATALOG_FILES
           SGML catalog behavior can be changed by redirecting queries to the
           user's own set of catalogs. This can be done by setting the
           SGML_CATALOG_FILES environment variable to a list of catalogs. An
           empty one should deactivate loading the default /etc/sgml/catalog
           catalog.

       XML_CATALOG_FILES
           XML catalog behavior can be changed by redirecting queries to the
           user's own set of catalogs. This can be done by setting the
           XML_CATALOG_FILES environment variable to a list of catalogs. An
           empty one should deactivate loading the default /etc/xml/catalog
           catalog.

DIAGNOSTICS
       xsltproc return codes provide information that can be used when calling
       it from scripts.
