       xupdate - Process XUpdate commands over an XML document


       xupdate [options] <xupdate-file> <input-file>

          -u | --usage        print brief help on usage
          -h | --help         print documentation

          -n | --namespace prefix=namespace-uri
                              associate a namespace with a prefix for use
                              in XPath selections in XUpdate file
                              (this option may occur several times)

          -k | --keep-ws      preserve whitespace in the XUpdate file
          -s | --strip-ws     strip ignorable whitespace from the input file
          -V | --version      print current version and revision
          -i | --indent       indent the output XML
          -j | --extra-indent like -i, but also adds a leading and a trailing
                              linebreak to every text node.

        but also put an extra newline after
        every start-tag and before every end-tag


       --usage Print a brief help message on usage and exits.

       --help  Prints the manual page and exits.

       --namespace prefix=namespace-uri
               Associate a namespace with a prefix. The prefix may be used in the XPath
               selections in the XUpdate file to address nodes of the source document that belong
               to the given namespace.  This is especially useful for mapping the default
               namespace to a prefix because XPath by definition doesn't honour default
               namespaces. This option may occur several times.

               Preserves any whitespace in XUpdate file. The default behaviour is to remove all
               ignorable whitespace and any leading or trailing whitespace in all XUpdate command
               elements in the XUpdate file.

               Remove "ignorable" whitespace from the input file. The default behaviour is to
               keep any whitespace unless the --extra-indent (-j) option is used. Note that the
               whitespace being present or not may affect results returned by some XPath
               expressions (such as /foo/bar/text()[2]).

               Print version and revision number of This program command and version number of
               XML::XUpdate library used.

               Indent the resulting document on output.

               Indent the resulting document on output as --indent, but also add a leading and a
               trailing linebreak to every text node.

       --debug Print some debugging information about commands being applied.


       This program will parse the given XUpdate file and the input file and print the input file
       updated accordingly. XUpdate file format is described in XUpdate Working Draft from
       2000-09-14 (
