hxnormalize - pretty-print an HTML file


hxnormalize [ -x ] [ -e ] [ -d ] [ -s ] [ -L ] [ -i indent ] [ -l line-length ] [ -c
commentmagic ] [ file-or-URL ]


The hxnormalize command pretty-prints an HTML file, and also tries to fix small errors.
The output is the same HTML, but with a maximum line length and with optional indentation
to indicate the nesting level of each line.


The following options are supported:

-x Use XML conventions: empty elements are written with a slash at the end:
<IMG />. Implies -e.

-e Always insert endtags, even if HTML does not require them (for example: </p> and

-d Omit the DOCTYPE from the output.

-i indent Set the number of spaces to indent each nesting level. Default is 2. Not all
elements cause an indent. In general, elements that can occur in a block
environment are started on a new line and cause an indent, but inline elements,
such as EM and SPAN do not cause an indent.

-l line-length
Sets the maximum length of lines. hxnormalize will wrap lines so that all lines
are as long as possible, but no longer than this length. Default is 72. Words
that are longer than the line length will not be broken, and will extend past
this length. A

content of the STYLE, SCRIPT and PRE elements will not be line-wrapped.

-s Omit <span> tags that don't have any attributes.

-L Remove redundant "lang" and "xml:lang" attributes. (I.e., those whose value is
the same as the language inherited from the parent element.)

-c commentmagic
Comments are normally placed right after the preceding text. That is usually
correct for short comments, but some comments are meant to be on a separate
line. commentmagic is a string and when that string occurs inside a comment,
hxnormalize will output an empty line before that comment. E.g. -c "====" can be
used to put all comments that contain "====" on a separate line, preceded by an
empty line. By default, no comments are treated that way.


The following operand is supported:

The name or URL of an HTML file. If absent, standard input is read instead.


The following exit values are returned:

0 Successful completion.

> 0 An error occurred in the parsing of the HTML file. hxnormalize will try to
correct the error and produce output anyway.


To use a proxy to retrieve remote files, set the environment variables http_proxy and
ftp_proxy. E.g., http_proxy="http://localhost:8080/"
