docbook_files

docbook_files lists and checks all files related to a DocBook writing project.

Features

  • lists and checks included files (XInclude)
  • lists and checks referenced files (media files and others, specified by fileref)
  • shows errors, e.g. not existing files
  • provides a detail listing
  • offers alternative output formats (YAML, JSON)

Synopsis

docbook_files is a command line application, bin/docbook_files, which checks the files that are included or referenced in a DocBook 5 project.

docbook_files myproject.xml

This will result in a overview listing of the file names, starting from file myproject.xml and following every XInclude link or fileref reference. fileref attributes are used in mediaobject tags to specify external image, video, and audio files. Files with problems are marked red.

docbook_files --details myproject.xml

The --details option adds, well yes, details to the overview: size, type information, timestamp and checksum.

If you don't like the screen output or want to integrate docbook_file into a certain workflow, just use the YAML or JSON output format instead. The option --outputformat lets you specify a different output format, for example:

docbook_files --outputformat=yaml myproject.xml

The result is printed to STDOUT. The structure returned is equivalent to the normal terminal output, except that you always get the details.

  • hierarchy - an array of entries for each step in the file hierarchy

  • type - file type (main, inc-luded, or ref-erenced)

  • name - file name

  • path - path relative to the main file

  • status - error status: 0 = ok, 1 = file not found, 2 = processing error (see error_string)

  • size - file size in bytes

  • level - the level in the file hierarchy, starting with 0

  • details - an array of entries for each file used in the hierarchy

  • name - file name

  • path - path relative to the main file

  • status - error status: 0 = ok, 1 = file not found, 2 = processing error (see error_string)

  • error_string - contains an error message, if status > 0

  • namespace - XML namespace, if applicable

  • version - XML version attribute, if applicable

  • docbook - true for DocBook 5 files, else false

  • tag - start tag for XML files (chapter, book, article ...)

  • ts - file modification time

  • size - file size in byte

  • checksum - SHA1 checksum

  • mime - MIME type
