Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Parameters in Docbook Article


Thanks very much for the pointer.  I will give it a go and let you know how it goes.

yes that looks completely reasonable, you'd just need to decide what markup in the source XML would be used to hold the client name, for example <phrase role="xslparam" vendor="output.client"/> (completely wild guess).

and then define in your custom XSL the function that will match the above element and replace it with the content of the $output.client parameter....

Hope that helps,

Good afternoon,

I am starting to work with Docbook again after a long time of not using it.

I am trying to find my feet again, and I am sure there is something that I used to do that I cannot work out how to do how so I am hoping you will be able to assist me.

I would like to set a parameter on the command line that sets the client, e.g. --stringparam output.client "ACME" and then use the output.client within the Docbook markup and for ACME to be displayed in the final output.

Is this possible or have I lost I completely lost the plot?

Thanks, Russell
