hxunpipe - convert output of hxpipe back to XML format
hxunpipe [ -b ] [ file-or-URL ]
The following options are supported:
- Normally, hxunpipe assumes the input was made by hxpipe, i.e., the input may contain character entities but will never contain SGML/XML delimiters (<>&"') that need to be escaped. When the input was made by (o)nsgmls, however, the entities will have been expanded and the input may contain SGML/XML delimiters. The option -b causes hxunpipe to look for those delimiters and escape them: "<" as "<", ">" as ">", "&" as "&", """ as """ and "'" as "'".
The following operand is supported:
- The name or URL of an HTML file. If absent, standard input is read instead.
The following exit values are returned:
- Successful completion.
- > 0
- An error occurred in the input.
To use a proxy to retrieve remote files, set the environment variables http_proxy and ftp_proxy. E.g., http_proxy="http://localhost:8080/"
Not all syntax errors in the input are recognized.
hxunpipe can currently only retrieve remote files over HTTP. It doesn't handle password-protected files, nor files whose content depends on HTTP "cookies."
