LIBXO(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		      LIBXO(3)

NAME
     xo_parse_args, xo_set_program -- detect, parse, and remove	arguments for
     libxo

LIBRARY
     library ``libxo''

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libxo/xo.h>

     int
     xo_parse_args(int argc, char **argv);

     int
     xo_set_program(const char *name);

DESCRIPTION
     The xo_parse_args() function is used to process command-line arguments.
     libxo specific options are	processed and removed from the argument	list
     so	the calling application	does not need to process them.	If successful,
     a new value for argc is returned.	On failure, a message it emitted and
     -1	is returned.

	       argc = xo_parse_args(argc, argv);
	       if (argc	< 0)
		   exit(EXIT_FAILURE);

     Following the call	to xo_parse_args(), the	application can	process	the
     remaining arguments in a normal manner.

     libxo uses	command	line options to	trigger	rendering behavior.  The fol-
     lowing options are	recognised:

     --libxo <options>
     --libxo=<options>
     --libxo:<brief-options>

     Options is	a comma-separated list of tokens that correspond to output
     styles, flags, or features:

     Token   Action

     dtrt      Enable "Do The Right Thing" mode

     html      Emit HTML output

     indent=xx
	       Set the indentation level

     info      Add info	attributes (HTML)

     json      Emit JSON output

     keys      Emit the	key attribute for keys (XML)

     log-gettext
	       Log (via	stderr)	each gettext(3)	string lookup

     log-syslog
	       Log (via	stderr)	each syslog message (via xo_syslog(3)) infini-
	       tyIgnore	the {h:} modifier (TEXT, HTML)

     no-locale
	       Do not initialize the locale setting

     no-retain
	       Prevent retaining formatting information

     no-top    Do not emit a top set of	braces (JSON)

     not-first
	       Pretend the 1st output item was not 1st (JSON)

     pretty    Emit pretty-printed output

     retain    Force retaining formatting information

     text      Emit TEXT output	infinityReplace	XML-friendly "-"s with JSON
	       friendly	"_"s e

     units     Add the 'units' (XML) or	'data-units (HTML) attribute

     warn      Emit warnings when libxo	detects	bad calls

     warn-xml  Emit warnings in	XML

     xml       Emit XML	output

     xpath     Add XPath expressions (HTML)

     The ``brief-options'' are single letter commands, designed	for those with
     too little	patience to use	real tokens.  No comma separator is used.

     Token   Action
     H	     Enable HTML output	(XO_STYLE_HTML)
     I	     Enable info output	(XOF_INFO)
     i<num>  Indent by <number>
     J	     Enable JSON output	(XO_STYLE_JSON)
     P	     Enable pretty-printed output (XOF_PRETTY)
     T	     Enable text output	(XO_STYLE_TEXT)
     W	     Enable warnings (XOF_WARN)
     X	     Enable XML	output (XO_STYLE_XML)
     x	     Enable XPath data (XOF_XPATH)

     The xo_set_program() function sets	name of	the program as reported	by
     functions like xo_failure(), xo_warn(), xo_err(), etc.  The program name
     is	initialized by xo_parse_args(),	but subsequent calls to
     xo_set_program() can override this	value.

     Note that the value is not	copied,	so the memory passed to
     xo_set_program() (and xo_parse_args()) must be maintained by the caller.
