lxnitepointer — Follow nite:pointer links


lxnitepointer [ -xmlns[:prefix]=uri ...] [ -l link-query ] [ input-file ]


lxnitepointer is intended for use with documents in NITE XML Toolkit (NXT) format. It follows nite:pointer links, and replaces them with a "trace" of the pointed-to element. This consists of an element whose name is constructed from the link's parent element and the link role, containing a copy of the pointed-to element (but not its descendants).

The input-file argument may be a URI instead of a filename. If no input-file argument is given, standard input is used.


binds a prefix (or the default namespace) to a URI for use in XPath queries.

-l link-query

an XPath query used to identify links, instead of using nite:pointer elements.
