NAME
       sabcmd -	a command line interface to Sablotron XSLT processor

SYNOPSIS
       sabcmd [options]	<stylesheet> [<input> [<output>]] [assignments]
       sabcmd [options]	-batch-xml <input> [<stylesheet> [<output>]]+ [assign-
       ments]
       sabcmd [options]	-batch-xsl <stylesheet>	[<input> [<output>]]+ [assign-
       ments]

DESCRIPTION
       sabcmd is a command line	interface to Sablotron XSLT processor. You can
       use is to transform XML files with XSLT stylesheets.

       The only	required parameter is a	stylesheet; this is a URI of  an  XSLT
       stylesheet  to  be  used	for the	transformation process.	If you omit an
       input file, the standard	input is used. In addition, you	can specify an
       output  file.  If  no  output  file is given, the output	is sent	to the
       standard	output.

       sabcmd can also run in a	batch mode to process single input  file  with
       multiple	stylesheets (--batch-xml) or to	apply a	stylesheet to multiple
       input files (--batch-xsl).

       Assignments allow to pass parameters and	named buffers to  the  proces-
       sor. The	assignments have always	the form of

	      name1=value1 name2=value2	...

       where  name  is	either	an  ASCII string for named buffers or an ASCII
       string with the leading '$' sign	for parameters.	(Note that you need to
       use  the	 right quotes to prevent the shell interpreter from performing
       an expansion of variables).

OPTIONS
       Option can be of	two forms - short or long. If some options  have  val-
       ues,  the  values are separated with a whitespace for short options and
       with a equal sign ('=') for long	options.

	      -L mylog.log

       is the same as

	      --log-file=mylog.log
