       xml2json	- convert an XML message with a	schema into JSON

	xml2json xml-file schema-file(s)  >json-file

	xml2json -x xml-file -s	schema-files -o	json-file

       Convert an XML message into JSON	with the same structure.  A schema is
       required	to enforce the correct syntax, especially for optionally
       repeated	elements.

       You can either specify an XML message filename and one or more schema
       filenames as arguments, or use the options.

       --xml|-x	filename
	   The file which contains the xml message.  A single dash means

       --schema|-s filename(s)
	   This	option can be repeated,	or the filenames separated by comma's,
	   if you have more than one schema file to parse.  All	imported and
	   included schema components have to be provided explicitly.

       --bigints|-b  (boolean)
	   By default, the translation is a little sloppy: Integer types are
	   defined to support at least 18 digits in XML.  However, this	is
	   usually unnecessary large and unreadible in JSON.

       --no-keep-root  (boolean)
	   Do not include the top node in the output.

       --mixed HOW
	   [1.32] How to treat mixed elements.	The default is TEXTUAL.	 Other
	   values are "ATTRIBUTES", "XML_STRING", and "STRUCTURAL".  More
	   details about mixed_elements	in XML::Compile::Translate::Reader.

       --type|-t TYPE
	   The type of the root	element, required if the XML is	not namespaceo
	   qualified, although the schema is.  If not specified, the root
	   element is automatically inspected.

	   The TYPE notation is	"{namespace}localname".	 Be warned to use
	   quoting on the UNIX command-line, because curly braces have a
	   special meaning for the shell.

       --output|-o filename
	   By default (or when the filename is a dash),	the output is printed
	   to stdout.
