sgml2rtf - create RTF output from a LinuxDoc DTD SGML source file


sgml2rtf [generic_option...] [--twosplit] file[.sgml]


sgml2rtf is an old and obsoleted form of the rtf converter command of LinuxDoc-Tools. It is recommended to switch the new form linuxdoc -B rtf now. It converts a LinuxDoc DTD SGML source file to RTF, the Rich Text Tormat used by the Microsoft Windows help system. Output will appear in the top level file file.rtf and file-n.rtf for each section, where file is the name of the SGML source file. The RTF output is tailored for compilation by the Windows Help Compiler (hc31.exe).

The attribute/value pair "output=rtf" is set for conditionals.


sgml2rtf accepts all the generic options described in linuxdoc(1),and:

Splits files both at n. sections and n.m. subsections
The SGML source file, named either file or file.sgml


Many files and executables in /usr/share/linuxdoc-tools and /usr/bin are used.


None known.
