Subject: Re: AW: [docbook-apps] Getting a list of XInclude'd files

Yes, thanks Ben.
Your comment got me further to a solution. I now have a tool that produces a listing of all of the xinclude'd  files in a master file. This will list out to the screen and make a file (xfilelist.txt) of all the files.
I have included the files here for anyone else that might need them.

Here is the Windows batch file that calls it:
@REM If you use catalogs...
set XML_CATALOG_FILES=my-catalog.xml
@REM Call the xslt processor
xsltproc --nonet -o xfilelist.txt xfile.xsl MyBigDocument.xml

Hi Dean,


I think you need to instruct your parser not to resolve the xincludes. I use Xalan with Xerces instead of xsltproc as processor. But in your case, isn’t it sufficient to switch off your –xinclude option before parsing? Then you could easily trace your <include> elements by any suitable template.


best regards,

Betreff: [docbook-apps] Getting a list of XInclude'd files




I'm sure this is a pretty common issue? I need to get a list of all of my XIncluded files in a document.


I need to package up all of the Docbook files required for a particular document so I can send them off to the translators. The document is in a directory with many more Docbook files that are not part of that particular document, so grep'ing would not work well for a list.


I have tried a few ways but I thought that I would ask on this list to see if any of you have a quick and easy way to process a list. I usually use XSLTPROC or Saxon as a processor (Windows and Linux).


Any ideas?
