hxunent - replace HTML predefined character entities by UTF-8
hxunent [ -b ] [ -f ] [ file ]
The hxunent command reads the file (or standard input) and copies it to standard output
with &-entities by their equivalent character (encoded as UTF-8). E.g., " is replaced
by " and < is replaced by <.
The following options are supported:
-b The five builtin entities of XML (< > " ' &) are not
replaced but copied unchanged. This is necessary if the output has to be valid
XML or SGML.
-f This option changes how unknown entities or lone ampersands are handled.
Normally they are copied unchanged, but this option tries to "fix" them by
replacing ampersands by &. Often such stray ampersands are the result of
copy and paste of URLs into a document and then this option indeed fixes them
and makes the document valid.
The program's exit value is 0 if all went well, otherwise:
1 The input couldn't be read (file not found, file not readable...)
2 Wrong command line arguments.
