elbe-preprocess

NAME

elbe-preprocess - resolves xinclude, external resources and resolves variants

SYNOPSIS

'elbe preprocess [options] <xmlfile>

DESCRIPTION

Typically elbe preprocess is used to generate an elbe XML file from a XML file that uses Xincludes, or other XML features. It can be also used for variant management with the variant= attribute.

If e.g. a variant=”audio,video” attribute is added to any XML tag, the tag will only be used if elbe preprocess is called with –variant=audio or –variant=video or –variant=audio,video. If no –variant is given, the tag will be dropped.

OPTIONS

--variant <variant>
 comma seperated list of variants
--output <filename>
 preprocessed output file, defaults to preprocess.xml
