docbook2gjots - Convert a DOCBOOK file to gjots format (on stdout)


docbook2gjots [ DOCBOOK-file ]


docbook2gjots converts a DOCBOOK XML file into gjots format.

docbook2gjots uses gawk(1) to perform the conversion.

<preface>, <chapter>, <section>, <sect1>, <sect2>, <sect3> and <sect4> tags are used to
define NewEntry and NewFolder boundaries. They should definitely have <title> tags.

This is a quick and dirty hack using gawk(1) and does no formal checking of XML or SGML
syntax nor does it validate against the DOCBOOK DTD. Consequently, if the syntax of the
file is broken the conversion will probably fail.

It is intended that a round-trip can be made so that gjots(1) can be used as a tool at all
stages of DOCBOOK production - mainly as an outline processor to help the author organise
and order the work. A document may well start its life in gjots(1) as the initial
thoughts are marshalled. As the document forms up, it can be converted to DOCBOOK with the
following command which automatically adds tags such as <?xml...>, <para> etc:

gjots2docbook -b file.gjots >file.xml
docbook2pdf file.xml

Or, starting with an existing DOCBOOK file:

docbook2gjots file.xml >file.gjots

In the latter case, the document will already have a lot of DOCBOOK tags so to convert
back to docbook, add the -e and -p options:

gjots2docbook -b -p -e file.gjots >file.xml
docbook2pdf file.xml
