Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Switching manpage generation from docbook-SGML to docbook-xml


If you get the DocBook XSL stylesheets, you can probably do the conversion with the xsltproc tool as shown in http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/RefentryToMan.html

Hope it helps,

PS The XSL conversion works fine in the toolchain I'm using (in a Maven project, so with a plugin based on https://github.com/mimil/docbkx-tools ), and we do almost nothing to change the default configuration for man page conversion. Just this:

 <xsl:param name="man.authors.section.enabled" select="0" />
 <xsl:param name="refentry.date.profile.enabled" select="1" />

I'm currently trying to switch git-buildpackage's documentationน from
SGML to XML. That worked out nicely for the HTML docs but there's one
problem with the manpages I'm stuck with. I used the build manpages.refs
from docbook2man to get the cross references in the manpages right:


Now I can't seem to figure out how this works with docbook2x-man. Is
this at all possible? If not are there other tools that can handle this?
Any hint would be greatly appreciated!
