.Dt DOCBOOK2MDOC 1
.Os
.Sh NAME
.Nm docbook2mdoc
.Nd convert DocBook to mdoc
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.Nm docbook2mdoc
.Op Fl W
.Op Fl s Ar section
.Op Fl T Cm mdoc | tree | lint
.Op Ar file
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Nm
utility reads DocBook input from a
.Ar file
and translates it to
.Xr mdoc 7
and
.Xr eqn 7 .
If
.Ar file
is omitted, standard input is used.
.Pp
The options are as follows:
.Bl -tag -width 2n
.It Fl s
Specify the manual page
.Ar section
to be used as the second argument of the
.Ic \&Dt
macro.
Defaults to the content of the first
.Eo < Ic manvolnum Ec >
element in the first
.Eo < Ic refmeta Ec >
block, if any, or to
.Qq 1
otherwise.
.It Fl T
Select the output mode.
The following arguments are supported:
.Bl -tag -width 4n
.It Cm mdoc
Translate the input to
.Xr mdoc 7 .
This is the default.
.It Cm tree
Dump a human-readable representation of the parse tree.
Each output line shows one tree node.
Child nodes are indented with respect to their parent node.
The columns are:
.Bl -enum -width 2n
.It
An asterisk if the node starts a new text line,
or a hyphen if the node follows the previous node
without intervening whitespace.
.It
The node type.
.It
For text nodes, the text contents.
For other nodes, the attributes, if any.
.El
.It Cm lint
Do not produce any output, only error messages.
Can be combined with
.Fl W .
.El
.It Fl W
Report warnings on standard error output, and if any occur, raise the
.Sx EXIT STATUS
to at least 2.
.El
.Pp
A subset of DocBook 5.1 elements are recognized,
as well as some elements from earlier versions.
The parser is optimized for robustness even on invalid input,
always producing some output on a best-effort basis.
Input is not required to be well-formed, nor to adhere to DocBook
syntactic or semantic requirements.
.Pp
Unknown elements are ignored in the sense that they do not affect
formatting and only their content is rendered.
Unknown attributes are silently discarded.
.Pp
In addition to DocBook elements, the following constructs are handled:
.Bl -tag -width Ds
.It Eo <!
.Ic DOCTYPE No ...
.Eo "[ <!" Ic ENTITY Ar name Qo Ar definition Qc Ec "> ]"
.Ec >
Internal subset declaration to define an XML entity.
.It Eo <!
.Ic DOCTYPE No ...
.Eo "[ <!" Ic ENTITY Ar name Cm SYSTEM Qo Ar file Qc Ec "> ]"
.Ec >
Internal subset declaration to define an XML entity using an external
.Ar file .
.It Eo <!
.Ic DOCTYPE No ...
.Bo
.Eo " <!" Ic ENTITY No % Ar name Cm SYSTEM Qo Ar file Qc Ec >
.Pf % Ar name No \&
.Bc
.Ec >
Internal subset declaration to include an external
.Ar file
that is supposed to contain entity declarations.
.It Eo < Ic mml : Ns ... Ec >
Elements from the MathML namespace.
These are translated to
.Xr eqn 7 .
.It Eo <
.Ic xi : Ns Ic include No ...
.Cm href Ns = Ns Qq Ar file
.Ec >
Include an external DocBook file into the current document.
.El
.Sh EXIT STATUS
The
.Nm
utility exits with one of the following values:
.Bl -tag -width 2n
.It 0
No error occurred, and if
.Fl W
was specified, no warning occurred either.
.It 2
At least one warning occurred, but no error, and
.Fl W
was specified.
.It 3
At least one parsing error occurred.
.It 5
Invalid command line arguments were specified.
No input files have been read.
.It 6
Memory was exhausted.
Parsing was aborted immediately.
.El
.Sh EXAMPLES
To pipe a DocBook document
.Pa foo.xml
through
.Xr mandoc 1
and a pager:
.Pp
.Dl $ docbook2mdoc foo.xml | mandoc -l
.Sh DIAGNOSTICS
Messages displayed by
.Nm
follow this format:
.Pp
.D1 Nm : Ar file : Ns Ar line : Ns Ar column : level : message
.Pp
The first three fields identify the
.Ar file
name,
.Ar line
number, and
.Ar column
number of the input file where the message was triggered.
The line and column numbers start at 1.
.Pp
Message levels have the following meanings:
.Bl -tag -width warning
.It Sy fatal
An operating system error occurred, typically memory exhaustion,
and parsing was aborted immediately.
.It Sy error
Indicates a risk of information loss or severe misformatting,
for example caused by unknown elements or missing include files.
.It Sy warning
Indicates a risk that the information shown or its formatting
may mismatch the author's intent in minor ways.
For example, mismatched or missing end tags are classified as warnings.
